Delicious cakes that include ingredients grown in St George's Park are to be donated to the Kidderminster and District Youth Trust Red Nose Day event taking place 11.30am to 2.30pm on Friday 13 March. Members of the Let's Eat the Park team Nicky and Carol have been busy baking cakes for a cake spectacular at the Youth House in aid of Comic Relief. In these lemon and rosemary cupcakes the rosemary was planted as part of the LEAP project intended to increase the availability of healthy food in the Horsefair and surrounding areas - at zero cost. Not only that but because the event has been organised by our partners KDYT at the Youth House - just across the ring road from the park and the cakes were made locally, it symbolises zero food miles as well, demonstrating our links with the aims of Transition Kidderminster too.
The other cake pictured below is a sage and apple cake made using sage grown in the park. Apples, its other main ingredient, have also been planted in both St George's and Baxter Gardens parks by the LEAP team, but it is too early to harvest any fruit from them yet. This cake also includes almonds which can be found in St George's Park too and both of these ingredients will soon be available from Let's Eat the Park.
Like all of FoSGP community initiatives the aim is to make as much as possible free to residents and visitors to our area, but these cakes represent the participation of the LEAP team in a national charitable event in collaboration with our community partners KDYT. Hope you can make it to the Youth House to enjoy the wonderful cakes to sample produce grown in the heart of our community and make a contribution to Red Nose Day.
