A workers' cooperative growing food on London's edge in the Lea Valley

Wednesday photos

Wednesday is the main weekly volunteer day at our Hawkwood site.

It is wet today, possibly even very wet. Clare is not here so I do not have her official weather/season classification. Luckily there are lots of nice varied indoor activities to keep us all busy in the glasshouse.

I don’t seem to be at my photographic peak today possibly because it is so dark that everyone seems to be a bit blurry but I hope you enjoy the below snapshots of our day.

Carole was a wizard in the kitchen and made the most amazing patties from squash and parsnip.

I thought you might like to see how beautiful these lettuces are even in late November!
