People in Haringey are being encouraged to turn over a new leaf and consider eating delicious alternatives to bagged salad in order to reduce the amount of food, particularly salad items that are being wasted and throw in the bin every day. 
The Hubbub charity and the North London Waste Authority have organised a number of cookery classes and composting workshops across the borough this month and there are still plenty of sessions to try out. 
Join chef Ganesh this Thursday at 6.30pm, as she prepares a summer Mediterranean-inspired menu at Everyone’s Climbing Tree in the community hub’s new kitchen, near Alexandra Palace rail station. She will show you how tired-looking vegetables can be used to invent your own salads and dips at this interactive workshop.
The New Leaf Surplus Salad Feast class will take place at 10am this Saturday at Hollywood Green, High Road, Wood Green, a short walk from the underground station. This event will celebrate seasonal eating with salad growing tips, delicious recipes and free food for everyone to try. People will leave this family friendly event with the skills to stir up summer salads and still save money. Don't miss the food waste feely boxes, as well as the smoothie bikes, confessions booth, salad dressing room and Organiclea's micro leaf small-place-growing stall. The workshops are a useful way to keep children occupied during the summer holidays, while also teaching them practical tips for looking after the environment and being frugal with food.
