The London Salad features the events held at Stannard hall in Summer 2010


We launched the London Salad publication

On Sunday 20th March, there was another Stannard Hall celebration with Eritrean food, thanks to Segen Ghebrekidan and other residents helping out.

Roasting the coffee beans

The aim of these garden events is to get residents planting their own food and we use this as an excuse to get together and cook together. It was lovely to have some neighbours over from St Gabriels next door and some gardeners from the Myatt’s fields greenhouses too. It was another lovely, warming event.

Everyone must smell the coffee beans after roasting

Invisible food was given some tree saplings, wild fruit and nut varieties, from the Royal Horticultural Society and the Woodland Trust,  and these will be planted mainly in Elam Street space in a few weeks time. Some trees will be planted at other partner organisation gardens. At Stannard hall we planted a cherry plum.

We sit on raised beds to eat!


Popcorn to accompany the coffee - a great combination


and finally, the coffee, poured out without stopping, into small china cups
