Edible Flowers in the Garden

Learn which flowers in the garden are safe and tasty to eat and cook some Ladybird-inspired recipes.

This summer, to coincide with the exhibition ‘what to look for in the Garden, a ladybird books exhibition‘ we will be hosting a series of food learning workshops inspired by the exhibition.

Pansies, nasturtiums and roses are found in many gardens, they can also be eaten (if cultivated appropriately) and turned into a delicious family friendly meal.

Sample recipes;
Nasturtium leaf pesto pasta
Leafy summer salad with edible pansies
Rose harissa roasted vegetables
Lavender scones

These workshops are aimed at children aged 6-10, although the idea of our classes is that the whole family gets involves and cooks together, this is not just for the children!

If you or your child has any allergies please let us know in advance.

All food and equipment is provided. Tickets for the session are £3 per person, and we expect the sessions to be popular so do suggest you book tickets well in advance.
Children and adults require a ticket so that we can manage capacity.
