As part of the 2017 Seniors Festival, HHRCS and the Hunters Hill Council organised an edible gardening workshop & cooking demonstration at 46 Gladesville Road, Hunters Hill. Healthy eating and how to grow plants commonly used in the kitchen were the topics of a very successful Seniors Week Event.
The group enjoyed a very informative gardening session led by expert gardener and well known author Meredith Kirton. The session was complimented by a wonderful cooking demonstration and an informative nutritional talk provided by RDNS Homecare who work with recipes developed by the Maggie Beer Foundation.
The 30 participants enjoyed a delicious lunch and took home a handy cookbook containing the recipes they had made cooked the session.
The event was funded by a Seniors Week grant provided by NSW Family and Community Services.
