Sustainable living – From Earth to plate

Whether you live in a flat, or sprawling mansion, you can grow your own food, and become more sustainable. In this workshop Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School will show you how to establish a vegetable garden, be it a patio or hanging garden, or something more substantial. We’ll give you tips on compost making and water wise irrigation. In addition we’ll talk about seasonal crops and  crop rotation.

In recognition of our gardens, the Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School Food Gardens have recently been nominated as one of Slow Foods Gardens of Africa. During the workshop we will take you through an extensive tour of the gardens.

Back in the kitchen, we will cook a few seasonal vegetables and give you tips on how to get the most out of the seasonal bounty. Subjects covered will include:

  • How to establish a vegetable garden, concentrating on planting vegetables for the summer, be it a patio or hanging garden, or something more substantial;
  • Laying out a vegetable garden and preparing planting beds;
  • Making compost and water wise irrigation;
  • Planting seasonal crops and crop rotation, concentrating on summer vegetables.
