ABOUT

 Global Gardens Project is a community growing project based in Cardiff. 

 

Our vision is to create a growing space that supports community-based sharing of food and cultures.  

 

We have an allotment site where we are cultivating an organic kitchen garden, celebrating crops from around the world.

 

The crops grown are used in our quarterly community suppers and shared within the local community.

 

We also have a mobile pizza oven which is available for community events.

We talked about cucumbers and courgettes.

We showed how salting and letting them sit concentrated flavour.

We made a raw grated courgette s...

For the April Global Gardens supper at the Embassy Cafe, we celebrated all things permaculture.

Usually, the Global Gardens monthly suppers involve the communal cooking of food - whether in the form of a workshop or a curated menu. For this supper, we thought it would be a timely opportunity to have a potluck in order to celebrate the foundations of permacultur...

Spring is in the air and plants are springing back with fresh new growth. For the March Global Gardens supper we celebrated the arrival of spring with a focus on WILD and FORAGED FOOD. 

In preparation for the supper, Vaida and Poppy harvested some wild garlic and nettles from the Coed Hills Rural Artspace.

With the wild garlic we foraged we made a wild garlic pesto. With the nettles, we made a vegan nettle soup

We also spoke a...

I've always deemed it important to learn about local food heritage.

Traditional dishes are made of produce you can harvest locally from the land and the sea, which makes them more sustainable, nourishing and tastier.

It also seems that some ingredients are undeservedly forgotten. In Wales for example, we are abundant with seaweed. 

Inspired by all of those reasons we decided to run a Welsh cuisine workshop in February, as part of our monthly...

This year has been an incredible growing year for Global Gardens - in April we erected the polytunnel and by August we were harvesting some delicious tomatoes, aubergines and chillies.We were also grateful for an abundant crop of squash and a bed of brassicas coming into full abundance as the temperatures drop.
