Welcome to the Recipes pages! Here we’re collecting recipes which make the most of what you can grow on a plot. Some have been devised and created by our very own plot holders or people from other sites. And we’re also now including ones from the Cook Together, Eat Together participants at St.Margarets Community Centre. You are very welcome to leave a comment after each recipe to tell us how you got on – or not as the case may be.

Please feel free to send in your own recipes. Happy cooking!
