Spring Greens – Court of Noke, Staunton on Arrow
Saturday and Sunday 3-4th May 2014
At the beautiful venue of Court of Noke, Herefordshire, the theme will be WATER, HIT Alliance forum, displays of sustainable energy, gardening ideas, food, local producers and businesses. An opportunity to learn and discuss? Loads of hands on stuff for children to do as well.
Our Outdoor Kitchen enamelware shop will be there right beside the cafe.
Yes, the Outdoor Kitchen will be a cafe again at this event with a variety of soups on the go. If you want to be part of the Cafe please contact me. I am looking for at least 4 soup makers per day, to make a soup each and serve it during the peak times of crowd hunger. All the profit from the cafe goes towards Spring Greens. There is often musical entertainment while we stir, interested vistors chatting and loads of fun to be had at the Outdoor Kitchen Cafe.
Take a peep Spring Greens to find out what is going on. Meanwhile a new web site in the making.
Contact me to help at the cafe.
Kington Festival - Turners Mill, Rural Crafts Past, Present and Future.
Saturday June 7th
Kington Festival always starts with a bang. On Sauturday 7th we will be under orders at Turners Mill........ Rural Crafts Past, Present and Future. We are not quite sure what shape our contribution will take, anything from demonstations to maybe a cafe?...........to maybe preparing fermented foods. If you didn't make it last year this event is really worthwhile. Kington is transformed into an old style market town and everyone dresses up appropriately.
Come and visit us all at turners Mill.
