A Wastewise Food Theatre

A Wastewise Food Theatre

June 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
South Perth Community Centre, South Terrace & Sandgate Street, South Perth WA 6151, Australia

The Forever Project’s Food Theatre program is very popular as it brings together a celebrity chef and a celebrity gardener for a ‘paddock to plate’ conversational performance, exploring the foundation theme that ‘food is only as good as the soil it is grown in’.

Through the medium of food we explore the importance of plant nutrition for human health and wellbeing. This is all delivered against the ‘backdrop’ of the City’s impoverished soils and provides ‘how to’ recipes to fix this condition for food growing in their own back yard!

Participants will get up close and personal with the chef, learning how to prepare Kefir, Kimchi, vinegars, stock, and will take home their own bottled vegetables.

During this session topics such as growing, preserving, reusing will be discussed as ways to reduce household green waste.

This free evening will end by participants sitting down to a delicious plate of paella and a fruit dessert to end the night!

Herbs have many uses both culinary and medicinal – and come from all corners of the globe.  But how do you grow them at home and provide the necessary conditions for them to thrive here in Perth?

Come along and learn what herbs you can group together, what their ideal growing conditions are, and how to utilise their unique qualities in companion planting (for example).

While herbs can be grown alongside any other plants in your garden, they provide their best display when given their own section.

No matter how much room you’ve got to plant herbs – planning the space will give you the best results.  If only a few different types of herbs are required for cooking, these can be grown in any corner of your garden

You will learn the different types of herb gardens and how to use herbs in your existing landscape.  We’ll briefly touch on uses for some common herbs and you’ll go away confident to grow and enjoy your own fresh and healthy herbs in your own garden.

Take home info sheets will be supplied but bring along a pen to take extra notes.
Cost: $29
