The TTW's Sustainable Food Group held another successful event on Saturday 28th November- to make your own Christmas! It was very well attended with over 50 people in the Methodist church function hall, and well organised too, with different activities and demonstrations flowing throughout the afternoon to keep everyone amused.
The children enjoyed making sweets and chocolates, and there was lots of yummy mince pies and stollen made, to feed all the mums, dads and grandparents too! Keeping up the traditional crafts, gingerbread men for the tree and dried orange decorations would brighten up the tree, and so many wreaths were made, you are sure to see more on doors this year!
We all enjoyed being part of this community event, the next one is the Seed Swap on Sunday 14th February, 2-4pm at the Dolphin pub. Everyone is welcome, either to swap seeds, or to take some for a small donation. Hopefully we can all do our bit to reduce the amount of things imported, and for Wellington to be more sustainable, so why not come along and try growing some veg next year!
