Whiffle Pig is continuing with the amazing veg boxes donating to the Hope Centre and care homes in Derbyshire with the allotment thriving with new and exciting fruit and vegetables. With the feedback returning that many disadvantaged families not only do not recognise vegetables they don’t look the same as the vegetables displayed in supermarkets, we have decided to work on showing that misshapen vegetables are not only part of the joy of growing but also a key learn-ing factor for next years crop. We have started to write up a mixture of basic recipes that are achievable in a low income house hold where the parent/ parents work full time and have children. What is important to us is that the recipes are not too time consuming or fancy, just the basics; we have also shown how it can be done with children too as the sense of ownership and achievement always encourages kids to tuck into food they may not before. We have taken on both a certified foraging course and a certified permaculture course so that we can have the best knowledge how to advise families to source food safely on walks, and find a sustainable way to grow their own no matter how small their space is.We are currently trialing the making of the mini green houses using all materials found in your home such as plastic bottles or milk cartons; the gentle introduction of growing their own and making their own with the aim to encourage them to try to vegetables they may not recognise.
