Love Your Local Market 2013
Saturday 18th May
Venn Street Market has invited pupils from Lambeth Academy’s Cookery Club to take part on 18th May as part of Love Your Local Market 2013. Students from Years 8, 9 and 10 (i.e. 12-16 year olds) will be making chocolate and strawberry muffins, Chelsea buns, carrot cake and flavoured breads using organic and fairtrade products.
Traders at Venn Street Market are all selected for the quality of their goods and by inviting young local enthusiasts to take part, we hope they will benefit from learning the trade whilst working with many of London’s best independent artisan producers. In the long term, pupils from Lambeth Academy will return to the market enabling them to build their knowledge and experience in becoming professional traders.
Clapham Leaf Club 2013
Saturday 13th July
Clapham Leaf Club is a project designed to enable pupils of the Clapham and Larkhall Collaborative primary schools (Allen Edwards, Clapham Manor & Children’s Centre, Heathbrook, Larkhall and Macaulay CE) to learn all aspects of growing their own food from preparing the soil using organic matter, to sowing seeds and culturing their crops which are harvested and sold as fruit and vegetables or used in a cuisine and cooked and sold at the Market every year in July.
This year the pupils from Clapham Manor Primary School and Children’s Centre are planning to make summer recipes from their harvests including Beetroot soup and Beetroot cake – all to be sold on 13th July.
Come along and join in the fun!
