peopleskitchencookingSunday 7 September, 1-3pm

Our friends from the ‘People’s Kitchen’ in Dalston, regularly turn surplus food that would otherwise be wasted, into a community banquet. This Sunday 7 September they will be setting up kitchen again in the Garden before handing it over to young people who are working with The Challenge  to cook up a lunch which everyone is welcome to share.

This event is free but donations are very welcome!

Latto’s Pizzas will be back in the evening from 6pm with pizzas from the Garden’s wood-fired oven.
