Eastern Chutney workshop @earlscourtcommunitychampions, learners enjoyed getting all the ingredients ready and worked as a team.
They couldn’t resist the smell and opted to taste the freshly cooked chutney 😋 instead of waiting 6-8 weeks to enjoy their handmade chutney🫙.

One of the many roles of Hammersmith Community Gardens Association is caring for indoor plants in offices & foyers around Hammersmith. This involves misting, trimming, cleaning, watering, repotting, planting & more. Yesterday Michael @pond_dipper was @245hammersmith & Metrea @theaircraftfactory . Plants taken out of temporary displays were donated to fellow charity @theupperroomcharity who seemed rather pleased with this!

Heavenly scented Herbal Beauty session @dalgarno_trust making fragrant soaps, coloured with mica powder and food colouring, scented with lavender & geranium essential oils and topped with strawberry seeds & rose petals.
Soaps smelt gorgeous and were good enough to eat “ Muffins “.
Learners were so pleased with their handmade soaps goodies.
