Bandstand Beds Clapham Common
On Saturday 17th June Bandstand Beds volunteer led community food growing project, HowellandHarte and Cactus Kitchens are collaborating for London Food Month to host a special Common Cook Up. Utilising fresh produce dug up straight from the community garden that morning Bandstand Beds volunteers, and food blogging duo, Will Howell & Conor Harte will be creating a mouth-watering menu to be enjoyed by all.
Alongside assisting Will & Conor, Cactus Kitchens’ cookery school team will be providing a free taster session of their popular Knife Skills class, giving guests a chance to learn how to handle a kitchen knife with confidence. Top tips will included learning how to dice and slice vegetables and herbs to reduce waste in the kitchen and get the best from seasonal home grown produce.
Bandstand Beds is a community garden project set up in 2013 to encourage locals to get their hands dirty, get outside, grow vegetables and have a good time. The group has grown from 10 to over 90 volunteer members and has been funded and supported by various charities including The Princes Trust, Tesco Bags of Help and Awards for All.
