The Kitchen Garden

Explore our extensive growing area at La Salle featuring polytunnels, raised beds, vines, four no-dig large growing areas using crop rotation, fruit trees and more. We compost all our kitchen and garden waste and have two beehives from which we hope to harvest one day our own honey.


Food For Growth

With a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund ‘Together for our Planet’ we delivered a series of visits from primary and secondary school pupils who looked at climate change and agreed positive actions to mitigate some of the worst effects exploring how we grow food and also cook nutritious meals.

Get Stuffed!

We worked with our Chef James Holden (NW Regional Chef, Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Adopt a School Project) to produce a recipe book using ingredients accessible in a Food Bank or Food Pantry, teaching families how to prepare them from our kitchen using cheaper air fryers and slow cookers. Working with local community organisations we have delivered two rounds of the project, in which participants received free kitchen equipment to use with the recipes they had been taught.

Horticulture Courses

Our Kitchen Garden is used weekly every Wednesday by participants on the City & Guilds Horticulture Skills courses Levels One and Two run by Myerscough College. Currently the Garden is open Thursdays from 10am until 1pm, for anyone who would like to get involved in the health and well-being benefits of outdoor work in a natural environment.

These programmes demonstrate the unique approaches we can take to delivering project work around educational practice using horticulture as a medium to connect with food growing, aligning our strategic goals with innovative approaches.
