From telephone trees to foraging fact files, we’re offering new ways for our carers to stay in touch and stay inspired.
Edible Flower Garden
As part of our Edible Flower Garden activity, seed packets will soon be winging their way to our participants, so that they can start to grow their very own decorative and tasty blooms this summer. We’ll be asking our gardeners to document their endeavours along the way – from seedling to edible flower atop a recipe of their choice. Find out more about the Edible flower garden.
Foraging Fact Files
Experienced forager, Jon Tyler, has produced a series of foraging fact files and recipe cards, which we have sent to our carers to use to inspire a local walk, with delicious results. You can view and download the cards here, and in addition to our family carers, they’re available to anyone with an interest in foraging!
Calling from the back of your cupboard
Our ‘Calling from the back of your cupboard’ initiative asks our participants to come together to explore those left-behind ingredients in the backs of their kitchen cupboards. What were they bought for? Why didn’t they get used? And how might they be able to use them now? This activity will be led by artist, Caroline Gervay and chef, Mike Knowlden, who will be offering online cookery demonstrations providing fresh ideas on how to use up these long forgotten items, starting this week.
