Growing & Cooking Food in the City

Cookery School at Little Portland Street’s Urban Growing & Gardening Event will cover topics including:

* Is it possible to grow food in offices? What opportunities exist for vertical growing?

* How are city businesses making the most of their rooftops and using them for gardens?

* What can we grow if we only have a small flat or a windowsill at home?

* Can public spaces be used to grow food? How would one go about doing this?

* How are community gardens bringing together children, schools, parents, family and friends?

* Does growing your own food tackle some of the challenges we face with our food system?
