We began in 2011 as a community food garden called Edible Eastside.It was a pioneering scheme in urban agriculture, offering a strategy for eating and living sustainably.
Then, in 2014 we started the cookery school. Whilst we grew our own food, talked food miles, organic growing and sourcing wild and uncultivated foods, we felt we needed to actually teach people how to cook this amazing, natural produce.
Kitchen School was born in 2014 at the Director's home. The garden closed in 2016 but we kept the cookery school open, moved it close to the site of Edible Eastside and renamed it Kitchen Food School.
Importantly, we plough profits into work with schools, community groups and develop programmes with people who need our skills and experience to improve their lives and diets.
