Hello folks,

We’re happy to see the return of purple sprouting broccoli – Spring must be on the way! Check out our veggiepedia for more recipe suggestions. For those of you who have recently subscribed, head over to our online community on Facebook, where you can join us and share recipe suggestions.

Our market garden, Left Field, is becoming a Field Lab in partnership with the Soil Association this year. For those of you who are keen home growers, we’re hosting an event on the 15th of February, where we’ll be looking at green manures and cultivation techniques. There’ll be a complimentary organic lunch and a tour of the site. Register for the event here.
