We'll explore how diet and lifestyle affects energy and productivity levels and Jill demonstrates how to make your own sleep spray!

You'll learn how your diet and sleep routines could be affecting your energy, factors that reduce energy levels and how to address these and which foods boost energy, brain function and concentration.
Jill, Square Mile Farms nutritional therapist will discuss healthy sleep habits, including how to make a simple sleep spray to help you fall asleep quickly at night. We'll provide you with an instruction sheet so you can have a go at making your own sleep spray at home.

How to Make a Healthy Home - Practical tips beyond diet: Wednesday 14 October, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
We'll go beyond diet to explore how to make our home environments healthier and demonstrate how to make a candle from natural ingredients.
All of us are spending more time at home since the lockdown with goals to improve our diet and exercise. However, our home and the environment around us plays a major part in our health and it's often the missing piece of the puzzle if someone is struggling with their health. Learn simple and effective ways to reduce chemicals in your home and protect the space around you to optimise your health from our nutritional therapist, Jill.
Square Mile Farm's Head Farmer Dish, will also be on hand to explore the benefits of introducing plants into your home. This workshop will have a practical element, Jill will demonstrate how to make a healthy alternative to conventional candles, with only two ingredients - oranges and olive oil! We’ll provide you with instructions so you can try this yourself at home after watching how it’s done.

Learn how to grow your own microgreens and get tips on growing indoors: Wednesday 28 October, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Microgreens are the young seedlings of vegetables, herbs, beans, and grains, grown in a high density in flat containers for a very short period of time. You can grow them at any time of year, indoors with minimal equipment, so this is a great way to grw some of your own food even if you don’t have access to a garden! They're known for being nutrient dense and having punchy flavour profiles.
Square Mile Farms Head Grower, Dish, will demonstrate step-by-step how to grow microgreens, from sowing, to growing and harvesting. He’ll also give you some basic tips and advice for growing indoors more generally. At the end of the workshop we’ll provide you with instructions so you can try growing your own microgreens at home.

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.
