We’ve been running the food learning programme since 2017, and since then have over 250 sessions (some of which were delivered online through 2020 and early 2021). As well as cooking with many local families and adults we have welcomed in community groups such as adults and young carers from Lambeth Carers Hub, South London Cares, South East London Vision, Archbishop Sumner School, Oasis Play Nature Garden, CEFL, Lambeth Children’s University and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
We base our recipes on seasonal vegetables and fruits and like to include botanically inspired foods such as edible flowers and herbs. Where possible we take inspiration from items in The Museum’s own collection, gardens or the temporary exhibitions. You can try out some of our recipes by checking out our food learning resources below.
If you organise or are a member of a local community group within the borough of Lambeth and would like to enquire about visiting the Garden Museum for a cooking session please get in touch with our Food Learning Officer, Ceri Jones on firstname.lastname@example.org.
A list of all our upcoming public food learning events are below.
