ONE FOR ALL COMMUNITY GARDEN
The Third annual BIG DIG !
21ST APRIL 2018
A Date for your Diary and great fun to be involved in. The residents of Kinsman and Treningle estates have their community Dig in the Garden and they are looking for an enthusiastic team to get the community garden into shape for this season.
Some of the jobs that need completing are building a compost bay, setting up some vine posts, tidying planting areas and planting out. If you have any skills that you think we can use, please come and join us you do not have to be a professional just prepared to give us a hand.
The event has really grown (pun intended) over the years and people of all ages have been helping out. Skilled or unskilled it doesn't really matter. What you do will make a huge difference and will help create a place that is open to all, a place that teaches all ages how to grow the food they eat, where it comes from, how to do it and a place of quiet refuge for many.
Come along and find out what other events will be running in the Community Hub and Garden. Tools, Tea and Cake provided.

Reducing food waste and food poverty, one great meal at a time
We throw away seven million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year in the UK, and more than half of this could be eaten. And that’s without the waste from supermarkets, shops and restaurants. And at the same time, there are roughly eight million people in the UK living in food poverty. That’s people like you and me; the homeless, people on low incomes, adults and children going hungry. It seems unbelievable that anyone would struggle to feed themselves and their families in today’s day and age, but they do.
To use our skills as chefs of course! We cook great food, and every meal we sell helps us donate a meal to those in food poverty. We use surplus food from our own suppliers, food waste charities and supermarkets and turn it into healthy, nutritious food such as soups and stews, that are distributed to those in need through our network of charities and community groups. If you are interested in donating produce or distributing food, please contact us.
We’re a profits-with-purpose organisation. A community interest company (CIC), our social enterprise catering service provides great food for weddings, private parties, corporate events and festivals. We cook everything from street food to A’la Carte. And every meal we sell helps us donate a meal to those in food poverty. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your catering requirements.
