AGM at 7.30 pm followed by a talk - A VEGETABLE CELEBRATION WITH ED BROOKS, JULIE JONES and LOUISE BUCHANAN - Ed Brooks will talk about how he grows vegetables on an acre of land in Liphook with no chemicals and little carbon. He supplies our own Crossways Fruiterers in the village and Julie Jones from the Shop will tell us how they source all the wonderful array of veg they sell. Our Chairman, Louise Buchanan who runs the Great Little Cookery School together, will show us how to make some simple seasonal canapés using vegetables. We will then have the chance to sample them with a festive drink!
