Grow Caton November news

The produce shelves at Beulah Lodge have been popular and busy. We have decided to keep them there over winter, even though we are not expecting a glut of things anymore, there may be the odd item that we bought too much that can be shared there. It is also a great place to drop off your empty glass jars (with lids) which we will recycle by preserving food in them 😊. We are still harvesting those last few beans and squashes from our plots and giving the gardens that final tidy. Plans for the village orchard are developing steadily and provide another opportunity to get involved in growing food in the village.

I spotted an advertisement for an event coming to Caton which sounds interesting and a few of us are hoping to attend: The FoodFutures Closing Loops project is hosting four world cafe events in communities across North Lancashire. Join in for a relaxed evening of delicious food and inspiring conversations about food, reducing waste and creating a more regenerative local economy. Find out more and register:. The date for Caton is 19th November at The Victoria Institute, start at 6pm with food served at 7.15pm.

Get in touch with Grow Caton through Peter Collins at the institute or by email to Brigitte via growcaton@outlook.com
