Patchwork Preserves is a collaboration between Growing Communities and North London Action for the Homeless (NLAH). Growing Communities donate their surplus veg to the NLAH kitchen. What isn’t used is then turned into lovely organic chutneys and pickles by Patchwork Farmers, staff and service users of NLAH. Recently we’ve even used beetroots from our own garden! So far we have made Spicy Beetroot and Orange Chutney, Spicy Carrot, Lemon preserve, Crunchy Courgette Pickle, Spicy Tomato Relish, Red cabbage and Ginger Chutney.
For Christmas we sold chutney at Stoke Newington Farmer’s Market as well as at Growing Communities Urban Farm Shop. Since the project started we have sold well over 200 jars and all profits go to North London Action for the Homeless.
