Raking & Baking
Community cooking and gardening course
The Raking & Baking project was established in 2011 to engage local people in growing food and cooking healthy meals. It also provides an opportunity for intergenerational and multicultural activities, supporting the centre’s vision to form a strong, cohesive and caring local community.
Raking & Baking now runs as a free weekly cooking and gardening course designed to connect people to nature and each other. Participants learn how to grow their own food in small spaces and to cook fresh, seasonal food from scratch. There is a focus on skill sharing, wellbeing and healthy eating.
