Growing your own food has so many benefits, even if it is just a few salad leaves or some pots of herbs on a windowsill. It brings you closer to nature and the seasonality of food. It is immensely satisfying to plant a seed, nurture it and end up with something delicious to eat. And, by growing your own, even just a few plants, you are cutting down on food miles and you have a better understanding of where your food comes from and how it is produced.

Join us on Wednesday 24 June at 8pm to hear how we grow our lettuces and other salad leaves in our no-dig kitchen garden in Saintfield and, learn how you too can grow your own pesticide-free seasonal salad and have a supply almost the whole year. We will also be showing you how you can use those gorgeous salad leaves to make Vietnamese Summer Rolls and a fresh and zingy Vietnamese Noodle Salad.

Here are the details:
