Spring Fayre 2019

Parkview Spring Fayre 2019 buffet

What a lovely day we’ve had. There was a lovely buffet, hosted by Ros with many donated dishes from our local community.

I’ve learned how easy it is to make delicious puffed rice at home. The samosas were very spicy and yummy too.

Chillie, sweet peppers and Squash plants

Later in the day two very important visitors from Hackney City Farm, Rita and Ken taught us how to grow sweet peppers, chillies and Squash on our balconies.

Rita explained: “It’s wonderful to watch them grow and then harvest the rewards and be able to eat them at the end of the season.”

Ken from Hackney City Farm in the bee keeper outfit.

Ken, the bee expert taught how bees pollinate plants for a long distance around each hive and it seems plausible to keep bees on estates to help pollinate our plants.

It takes around 600  bees to fill one jar of honey and the bees fly twice around the globe to fill that jar. (equivalent)

Also there was a giveaway of bee friendly flowers for our balconies to help sustain that bee hunger.
