The Sessions at Home

Whilst we cannot host The Sessions which you've come to know and love in the usual sense right now, we've curated a collection of our top picks of fitness classes, talks and workshops which our trusted partners are streaming from the home to yours.

How to grow new plants from old:  Learn how to propogate with Square Mile Farms  - Wednesday 15 July 6pm - 7pm

Click here to register: Eventbrite   Tickets are £7.20, for every ticket purchased Square Mile Farms will donate £1 to the North Paddington Food Bank

Square Mile Farms have partnered with Paddington Central to deliver this exclusive event which forms part of ‘The Sessions at Home’, a regular, ongoing programme of events open to all.

Have you ever wondered how you can grow your own avocado plant from the leftover stone or how to grow new herb plants from a cutting? In this session, you’ll learn how to grow new plants from existing ones with Hannah Grows. She’ll cover the tricks of sowing seeds,
taking leaf cuttings, stem tip cuttings, rooting in water and rooting in compost.

You'll be guided through propagating herbs like mint and sage, house plants like succulents and geraniums, and even avocados as house plants. By the end Hannah will have provided you with the knowledge to start propagating at home!

At the end of the session, there’ll be a Q&A, where you can ask Hannah any questions you have about propagating or 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.



Ferment - Along with Square Mile Farm - Wednesday 29 July 6pm - 7pm

Tickets are £7.20, for every ticket purchased Square Mile Farms will donate £1 to the North Paddington Food Bank

You might have heard of a cook-along, but have you ever heard of a ferment-along? This hands-on introduction to fermenting will provide you with the tools and knowledge to start experimenting with fermentation at home. Hannah Grows will guide you through the basics of fermenting and together we’ll make a fermenter’s favourite, Sauerkraut! 

Why fermenting?

Fermented foods are rich in beneficial probiotics and are associated with a wide range of benefits such as improved digestion and stronger immunity. A wide variety of foods can be fermented - yoghurt into kefir, cabbage into sauerkraut and fruit into kvaas - to name a few. Adding herbs and spices such as turmeric or cinnamon will give your ferment a real boost in health benefits.

During this workshop we’ll be making Sauerkraut together.

Here are the ingredients and equipment that you will need to source prior to the workshop:

  • Cabbage(1 white cabbage or ½ white and ½ red cabbage)
  • 1 desert spoon of sea salt
  • Caraway seeds (optional for flavour)
  • A sharp knife
  • Chopping board
  • A mixing bowl
  • A rolling pin or sturdy wooden spoon
  • Large sterilised jars (jam jar or Kilner style jars)
  • Weighing scales
