Last week we had a fantastic free event at Homebaked. We were joined by artist Polly Brannan from Avant Gardening and Weston Hammond, artist in residence at Anfield Primary School. Polly led an informal discussion about projects she has been involved with around gardening, local environments, play and public spaces, and Weston talked about the gardening project he and his students have been working on.
The event was part of a series of talks organised in collaboration with Liverpool Biennial and will form a basis for ideas and discussion around a Homebaked growing project with local residents.
Participants were encouraged to bring along their home-grown veggies and herbs which we used as toppings on home baked pizzas which were served after the talk. In the kitchen we had some help from Anna who runs Prince Albert Pizza in Gloucestershire, and everybody mucked in together to make this a really fun evening. We’re looking forward to many more events like this at Homebaked in the future.
