Not much growing in the garden? Try growing some sprouts in a jar. So easy to grow and ready in a few days. Convenient, nutritious, fresh, zero waste and zero food miles.
No special equipment needed – just a glass jar, a piece of cloth and a rubber band. Mung beans and lentil seeds work well for sprouting and can be economically purchased from bulk bin stores and there are some great tutorials on line. Bin Inn in Warkworth is open under Level 3 lockdown from 9 - 3 pm.
During Level 4 lockdown I think we all realised just how important community food resilience is! Having some food growing at home is extremely valuable. I have quite a big garden with lots of fruit trees, so am self-sufficient for fruit and vege over lockdown.
Not everyone can have a garden but even a few veges or herbs in a pot or on a windowsill are a great resource for a household. Or grow some microgreens in a seed tray.
We're devoted to zero waste, and have wonderful local, wastebusters like Trish Allen, who will be sharing tips on reducing waste and keeping you up to date with what is happening at our Lawrie and Rustrybrook Road sites.
