In this workshop, Hannah will show you how to make an Edible Table Centrepiece, a planter bursting with herbs and edible flowers to bring life, flavour and colour to your dining table and to your meals!
Hannah will demonstrate step-by-step how to build this planter and talk through a range of plant options that you can tailor to your dinner party or event. There will be a special focus on how to divide and 'pot on' supermarket herbs, to create happier plants that thrive indoors. We’ll also explain how to help get the most out of the plants from your table centre. By the end Hannah will have provided you with the knowledge to build your own edible table centrepiece at home.
At the end of the session, there’ll be a Q&A, where you can ask Hannah any questions you may have more generally about growing at home. This is your opportunity to get Hannah’s expert advice on your home-growing conundrums. Square Mile Farms’ Head Farmer, Dish, will also be on hand to help with questions about indoor growing.
For every ticket purchased, Square Mile Farms will donate £1 to the North Paddington Food Bank, a local charity based in W9, serving the community since 2014. Covid-19 has caused an extraordinary increase in demand and you can help us to support them to continue helping local people who are facing hunger.

Zip Fit Club - Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday 12noon
These 30-40 minute training sessions are dynamic, whole body workouts designed specifically to target the bodies and minds of people who are in 'office posture' for most of the day and want to improve their balance, cardiovascular system and total body strength.
Chris focuses on waking up the heart and lungs, lengthening out areas that are characteristically tight such as hamstrings and hip flexors, increasing tone in buttocks and legs, working to strenghten the core and postural muscles and stretch out tired shoulders and arms.
