The Ecology Centre have launched their first cookbook called 'Our Community Cookbook - Your Kitchen'. The cookbook brings together recipes from staff, volunteers and old favourites that are regularly served up on a Wednesday - the Centre's main volunteering day. After a busy morning spent outdoors onsite, in the Community Garden and in the Tool Shed, staff and volunteers gather together to eat, share banter with each other and enjoy a tasty homemade lunch, using freshly grown produce from the garden. The recipes have been designed to be easy, seasonal and cheap to cook for anywhere from one person up to thirty people. It includes tips on how to grow your own fruits and vegetables and information on the many health and wellbeing benefits of working with nature.
The recipe book is available to buy at The Ecology Centre and via their website. It will make a great little Christmas stocking-filler and will support a local charity. All proceeds raised go straight back into supporting the charity and ensure that they can continue with their volunteering programmes onsite, in the Community Garden, Tool Shed and dementia friendly volunteering activities too.
