Healthy Eats & Growable Treats
A project in partnership with Macedon Ranges Shire Council and Healthy Heart of Victoria
We have created a series of simple instructional videos to inspire you to slip on your gardening gloves and dig in!
Kyneton Community House recently partnered with Jane Grylls aka The Domestic Scientist to produce a series of cooking videos featuring six of her very simple, affordable, adaptable, delicious but most importantly nutritious recipes that cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Jane has been fortunate to work with some of the top chefs in Australia, but what really inspires her is helping everyday people understand that food is not only delicious, it’s a way to help us care for ourselves, show loved ones we care and a way to bring people together.
Our mission for these videos is to showcase good, healthy and nutritious food that isn’t expensive or complicated.
In some of the videos, Jane shows Matthew, a novice cook, just how easy it is to make fabulous food on a budget.
Jane also shares her tips and tricks about how to make your ingredients last longer, help reduce food wastage and how to adapt the recipes to suit your taste, budget and what you already have in the fridge.
Let’s get cooking!
You may think that gardening is only meant for “green thumbs” or for those with lots of space. Or that growing food is a nice idea but too difficult or expensive to set up.
Here at Kyneton Community House, we are ready to bust some of these myths and show you that growing your own food can be easy, affordable, and scalable to even the smallest areas.
We’ll also show you how to make use of what’s around you in your own home and locally – you’d be surprised just how much “waste” is actually a valuable resource for your garden!
Reusing, recycling or repurposing materials is a great way to save money AND be more environmentally conscious when growing food. Not to mention that growing food in itself is sustainable – it’s as locally sourced as you can get!
There’s nothing like the satisfaction of raising your own veggies from seed to harvest – and research has shown that getting your hands in the soil has many benefits for both your mental and physical health too.
