Communinty Activites

In March we’ll be visiting the imperial war museum following your suggestion. Please get in touch to join us on this visit.

What's been going on?

Cooking Session at the Garden Museum The Garden Museum recently hosted Knights Walk residents for a cookery session. Over the day residents worked with Ceri, a Food Educator to make carrot and coriander soup, flat breads and apple crumble. The group used different techniques and ingredients to produce a meal with increased fibre and nutrition whilst reducing the use of salt, sugar and fat.

The Garden Museum runs regular events and workshops. Upcoming events include the “Grow yourself healthy” workshop and an art fair; “ Super Nature”.

To find out more contact the Museum by phone on 020 7401 8865 or visit the website at www.gardenmuseum.org.uk.

The Garden Museum is at 5 Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7LB
