This winter we’ve really needed our weekly soups to keep us warm and this week in time for spring and the end of soup season we’ve just run out of onions. The stored squash and carrots are nearly gone, we’re done to our last little swedes and kale… hooray for leeks! It’s hard to imagine it was like when people had to feed themselves through this hungry gap before the new veg were ready without a polytunnels or imported veg. The vitamin rich green watercress or the first rhubarb poking through the soil must have been like emerald and ruby treasures.
We’ve got our usual jamp packed kids’ days running this Easter and 5-12 years olds can expect a trip to Never Never Land this time! I am happy to announce we’ve got lottery funding this year to carry on providing our accessible family adventure days to familes with children with a special educational need or a disability. Our first one in 2018 is on Thursday April 5th 11am-3pm and is just £5 per child and will be a LOVELY day of silliness and games and chance for families to spend time together outside and share a delicious freshly prepared lunch. Please pass on the info to anyone you think might benefit.
