Learn more about your food at Family Growing sessions in Lache

Families in Lache can learn more about the food they eat and where it comes from during a series of Family Growing events taking place over the summer holidays.

Organised by Sanctuary Housing, The Mersey Forest and Healthbox CIC, the free sessions are taking place at Lache Growing Space, on the corner of Oxford Road and Burnham Road, between 1-3pm on Wednesdays until 29 August.

Residents attending will learn how they can grow their own delicious, fresh seasonal vegetables and use them to prepare healthy, nutritionally-balanced meals.

Lache Growing Space is one of several former urban garage sites in Chester turned into viable and sustainable community allotments as part of Sanctuary’s Growing Spaces initiative.

Libbie Stock, Sanctuary’s youth engagement officer, said: “These sessions are all about showing how the food we eat goes from seed to plate and demonstrating how simple and enjoyable growing your own produce can be.

“We are committed to making our neighbourhoods greener and more sustainable places to live and hope lots of residents will join us to make the most of this wonderful community space.”
