Grow Wild – Field Kitchen at Common Growth

On Saturday 25th November from 2 – 3pm Grow Wild will be setting up a field kitchen in the Common Growth for a soup making workshop!

What better way to warm yourself up after a winter walk or even a spot of gardening! So do drop in and find out how you can make deliciously healthy soup from locally sourced ingredients such as leeks and herbs picked. You never know, you might even get to taste some soup made with ingredients straight from the Common Growth garden!

The Common Growth garden is next to Franklin House on the corner of Sandbourne and Jerningham Roads—SE4 2NT. This will now be a regular event, and other dates planned for December 9th, 23rd and 30th and 6th January 2013.
