Live Well and Eat Well - Recipes for sharing!

Not only does local food growing offer a more sustainable and often cheaper source of food, the activity itself brings people together in a shared attempt to reconnect with nature in an urban environment. Urban food growing can enhance people's wellbeing and build a sense of community among people from different cultural backgrounds. With the launch of the Live Well Cooking classes we bring the growing, cooking and eating together!  Here we share some of our Live Well recipes - enjoy!

September Seasonal Food: Cinnamon apple cake

There’s nothing more satisfying that eating something delicious that you’ve grown yourself. At WEN, that’s basically our mantra! We believe that growing your own food is a guaranteed way to improve your diet, health and happiness, as well as reducing your expose to harmful chemicals found in pesticides. Eating seasonal, locally grown food also has vast benefits for the environment too, reducing the air miles of your food and decreasing your carbon footprint. Our seasonal food series shows you how to make the most of the fruits of the season in easy and delicious recipes. 

For September we are celebrating apples with a delicious cinnamon cake topped with sticky, sweet apples.
