Gardening & cooking

The infrastructure of CUC is in a state of transition and its members are working towards redesigning the facilities and buildings on its site. In 2017 an area of waste ground behind the sanctuary was earmarked for a garden, which has seen a highly productive and successful first year. Flowers and vegetables grow in large planters, managed by a team from the congregation and the produce made generally available. The garden has recently benefitted from a grant from the Co-operative Society and CUC is working to create a peaceful space for all to enjoy.

Alongside the Garden Project, a Cookery Project will be starting in 2019 to offer people of all ages skills in cooking and to raise awareness of the food policies which we need urgently to adopt to benefit health and the environment.
