How you can start growing, harvesting and cooking your produce.
Hilda is a retired NHS Nurse and Founder member of Lambeth GP Food Co-op.
This is an organisation that enables people to meet other people with an interest in growing vegetables together. This not only helps combat social isolation, it also builds confidence. The joy of growing your own tomatoes, or courgettes, not only develops confidence, it benefits the health of the individual.
The food that is grown is distributed and sold to NHS staff as well as to NHS hospital caterers. So the GP Food Co-op not only enables and empowers local people to learn new skills, to be confident and sociable, it also makes a valuable contribution to the local economy.
Hilda was born in Trinidad, West Indies and came to the UK in the early 1970s to pursue her career in nursing. Her family had agricultural lands so her zest for growing began in her childhood and has developed over the years.Hilda will be passing on her tips on how you can start growing, harvesting and cooking your produce.Hilda Castillo, http://lambeth.gpfoodcoop.org.uk/
