Author Talk - Paul West ‘The Edible Garden’
When: November 28th 2019
Where: Upper Hunter Shire Council's Scone Administration Centre,
135 Liverpool Street, Scone

For Paul West, a meaningful life is one built around food and community. In The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide, Paul shows you how easy it is to grow and cook some of your own food, no matter how much space you have.

Paul shares practical gardening advice, with guides on building a no-dig garden, composting and keeping chooks, and an A-Z guide of the veggies that are easiest to grow. There are also more than 50 of Paul’s favourite family recipes - simple, produce-driven dishes that are bursting with freshness and flavour. And then there are ideas for fun food activities to do with your community, whether it’s hosting a pickle party or passata day, brewing beer with some mates or whipping up a batch of homemade sausages.

The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide is a celebration of real food and vibrant community. It will inspire you to grow, cook and eat with those you love - and find real meaning along the way.

RSVP by 22 November - Bookings are essential. Call Scone Library on 6540 1183 or sign up on Facebook to secure your place.

Light refreshments will be provided. Mr West will have his new book available for sale and signings.
