Aspire Growing held their first ‘Souper Day’ last week. In addition to their usual menu, the people we support served fresh, warm bread rolls and seasonal soups made from produce grown in our garden, cooked in our kitchen and served in our café. We sampled delicious leek and potato, tomato and tarragon and spicy pumpkin soups. Each was yummier than the last!
There was so much produce in the garden that the people we support decided to learn how to make jams, preserves and chutneys. Aspire Growing’s lovely lemon curd, marvellous orange marmalade and perfect pear chutney would make particularly delicious Christmas presents!
The Mayor of Hereford, Sue Boulter, attended as Aspire is one of her Mayoral charities this year. She really is our biggest fan!
It really was a souper day and many more such events are planned. Join us!
