Learn how to grow your own food with Punch and Juicy

NATURAL LIFE: Punch and Juicy want to demonstrate how simple it can be to grow healthy foods

BRENT-BASED social enterprise, Punch and Juicy Liquid Foods, are increasing their remit by adding a third element to their natural food education brand.

On Saturday 22 April, Punch and Juicy will launch their community allotment space and market stall, Root to Market. The day's activities will include:

• Help create a herb garden

• Help to build the Root To Market training area

• Learn how to build a raised bed

• Plant some summer berries

• Build a geo dome workshop

• 100ft of rich soil, providing room for all attendees to get involved and learn to plant.

The launch will signal the start of a natural production line - members of the community that want to participate can grow fresh fruit and vegetables on the allotment, learn how to create varied flavour combinations with healthy food and drink at the Juice Academy then sell the produce on a market stall.

The event forms part of national campaign, #BigDig and falls a year after the start of the Juice Academy, which has so far serviced 500 Brent residents under the age of 16 who have learned about healthier alternatives to widely-available sugary beverages. The academy was funded by a Mayor of London initiative and was one of a select number of ideas picked from across the country.

Everyone who attends on the 22 April will get a chance to win a week supply of fresh juices.
