We've been making the most of some of the vegetables that are starting to come into season. A few weeks ago our workshop with Class 2 at Iron Acton Primary School focused on their topic 'How does our garden grow?' Some of the children enjoyed their first taste of broad beans and asparagus which we used in a bulgar wheat salad. As they made rhubarb crumble bars they also learnt that rhubarb is actually a vegetable rather than a fruit.

This Friday as part of Bristol Big Green Week we're holding a 'Pick and Mix' workshop at St Michael on the Mount primary school in the centre of Bristol. The children will be picking some of the vegetables and herbs growing in their school garden and 'mixing' them to make some delicious dishes including spinach and potato fritters, rosemary foccacia and a mixed leaf and herb salad. At the end of the day parents will have a chance to try some of the food their children have made and take away recipes to make at home.
