LinkAge Network has been working in partnership with three of Bristol’s city farms; Lawrence Weston Community Farm, St Werburghs City Farm and Windmill Hill City Farm, to run cookery sessions for people aged 50+.

The Talking Tables project is funded by Bristol Ageing Better, and is made up of several 6-8 week cooking sessions that will take place in 2018 and 2019. The cooking sessions aim to support people aged 50+ with the skills and knowledge to feel confident to cook nutritious and tasty food. The sessions will also provide them with the opportunity to meet and socialise with other local people.

By running the cooking sessions at the city farms we hope that it will provide participants with the opportunity to enjoy the open air, to harvest produce and join the farms’ vibrant communities if they wish.

Talking Tables also plans to run one series of cookery sessions each year for people aged 50+ who identify as LGBT+.

Talking Tables endeavours to be accessible to people with all access requirements. If you have an access requirement, please contact us and we can discuss how Talking Tables can meet your needs.
