Home Grown Cooks

One of our favourite local social enterprises, Edible Eastside, has launched a crowd funder campaign to raise £10,000 towards creating a new cookery school next door to their garden off Fazeley Street in Digbeth.

Their current cookery school is run from the Director’s house miles away, but the plan is to move it to a new permanent home next to the garden in Digbeth, to propagate a farm to fork philosophy and teach people about good sustainable food.

The rewards being offered for pledges would make ideal gifts, team-building events or Christmas party ideas: why not throw a cookery party for £250 or a bread making class for £25? Those with deeper pockets can sponsor a six-week cookery course for food bank users, run in partnership with Aston Food Bank. There is also the option of making a simple pledge of £10 to help them reach their target.

Every little helps in supporting this great project, and it being a social enterprise, any surplus is reinvested right back into the community here in Digbeth.

The campaign finishes on 9th October so be quick! Click here to pledge.
