Our Growing Healthier together project focused on promoting the Walton Court Community Garden , involving our nursery children with their families and local residents in planting and growing fresh foods, then following this with a series of cooking and nutritional workshops facilitated by Aylesbury Adult learning to utilise the produce grown and to promote healthy eating.
Our cooking courses ran for a total of 6 weeks, starting on 13th September and finishing on 18th October and ensured participants learnt some simple ideas for cooking inexpensive, delicious and healthy meals.
Using ingredients grown in our ‘Community garden’, the project in place with Aylesbury Garden Town, and promoting “grow your vegetables and learn to cook with them” project, the FREE course promoted the core values of the Healthy Living Centre and working partnership with Aylesbury Garden Town to promote and support healthy living.
The participants involved in the Cooking classes really enjoyed the course!
The ‘Community garden’ is still an ongoing project and is available for anyone to join. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01296 334562 for more information.
