FREE Growing Seasonal Salad Leaves with The Edible Flower – Online Cooking demo & talk
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 Erin and Jo from The Edible Flower to hear how they grow their lettuces and other salad leaves in their 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. Erin and Jo 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.
