At this work party we will be planting out and sowing the seeds of various pulses, including beans, lentils and peas, in our Millennium Square gardens as part of our contribution to the British Dal Festival. Our aim is to show how easy it is to grow these amazing crops in the UK and therefore to grow our own staples for the winter months.

We’ll be blogging all about the process thought the year and will be giving away seeds at the final British Dal Festival event at Paintworks on 25th March.

For more info take a look at the British Dal Festival website! There are some fabulous recipes there too.
