A new recipe book will be launched at the Shambles Market on Saturday 10 September when the Stroud Valleys Project's Get Growing team are running a One Harvest event with local school children.

Recipe_book_sept11SVP Get Growing project joint co-ordinator Tamsin Bent said:” We met with Erica Tyror-Taylor the gardening club leader at Park Infant school, who is also a member of the Shambles market traders association. She suggested we team up with the local market traders to do a special children’s recipe book with the 20 schools we are working with.”

The Cotswold Chef, Rob Rees, will do a cookery demonstration between 12-1pm and the children will have a chance to be market traders for the day.  One thousand of the Get Growing - Get Cooking recipes books will be given away free at the Shambles market and 1,000 will go into the local schools who are taking part in the SVP gardening project.

Shambles trader Ron Cree said:” "It’s great to be involved with local schools, to encourage the next generation to support their local traders in the market, and for them to see how we work, and that there is an alternative to supermarkets. With them growing their own food, and then selling it, they will be able to see how a local market feeds the local community."
