Cooking for the Over 50s at the City Farms!

Local Bristol charity LinkAge Network, is delighted to launch new cooking sessions for people aged 50+ at three of Bristol’s city farms; St Werburghs City Farm, Windmill Hill City Farm and Lawrence Weston Community Farm. 

The Talking Tables project is funded by Bristol Ageing Better, and is made up of several 6-8 week free cooking sessions. The aim is to support the over 50s in a fun and friendly environment to feel confident in cooking tasty food. 

By running the cooking sessions at the city farms we hope that it will provide participants with the opportunity to enjoy the open air, harvest produce and socialise with other local people.

Sarah Flint from St Werburgh City Farm says, “Food brings people together and Talking Tables will do exactly this – so I’m looking forward to sharing recipes, stories and a meal in the lovely surroundings of the City Farm. I hope to incorporate fresh farm produce into the meals we cook – but I’m happy to be led by what the group wants, so anything from homemade baked beans, to Thai curry or even homemade sausages! 

Jo Stokes, Chief Executive Officer at LinkAge Network adds, “Eating with others is such a pleasure; good food, good company, what more could you want!”

Want to get involved?

Sessions at St Werburghs City Farm will take place every Thursday between 26th April – 14th June  (although this series has started we still have space for more people), 5th July – 23rd August and 13th September – 1st November 2018, from 3 – 6pm. 

Talking Tables endeavours to be accessible to people with all access requirements, so if you have an access requirement, please contact us and we can discuss how we can meet your needs.
