Education project shares the harvest with Sense families

On the 1st of September, a group of families from Sense came to enjoy the bounty of the Sims Hill Harvest.

The children who visited have sight/hearing issues, and in some cases many other health complications. All enjoyed engaging with the smells (from garlic chives to fresh tomatoes), textures (from soft marshmallow leaves to prickly cucumbers) and tastes (from raspberries to green beans) on offer!

Families harvested and prepared simple meals, learning new healthy seasonal recipes which they can repeat at home. Many parents said their children were trying – and enjoying – vegetables that they wouldn’t touch at home.

It was a great day, with very positive feedback from children, parents and Sense staff. We hope to arrange more similar days in the future which really make the most of Feed Bristol’s accessible facilities and bring new diverse groups to Sims Hill to engage with healthy, seasonal local food.

Here’s one of our easy recipes if you want to try it with the glut of beans we have at the moment:
