Fruits of Our Labour

flowers-2Seed touches soil, touches water.  Seedling emerges.  Leaves unfurl, then flowers, then fruit.  The entire process is beautiful but autumn is the climax of this epic adventure because now we are in the time of the harvest when the fruits of all of our hard work roll around in our mouths, nourishing us all in preparation for the restful winter months.

And in these past couple of months we’ve had no shortage of feasts; a visit from a celebrity chef, birthday parties, the inauguration of the clay oven, eating because it’s summer, eating just because.

What we savour the most in all of our feasts is the pastiche of flavours coming together from every  corner of our beautifully diverse community in Moss Side.  Every forkful is a symbol of hope for a more peaceful world because what could be more unifying than the love of food and life and nature…….?
