Learning from different cultures through exchanging of recipies.
“The person interviewed has emphasised the need for greater economic contribution and more technical personnel for a more effective development of the different workshops.”
Description of the activity
This activity has the purpose of sharing different kinds of cooking all prepared with the vegetables obtained in the garden and the edition of a recipe book.
Migrants have the chance to show the rest of the gardeners the typical food of their countries, at the same time they can learn more about typical Spanish dishes.
It ends with a harvest festival in which the different dishes of the recipe book are shared and tasted.
In this activity only the gardeners can present a recipe, but the harvest party is open to anybody who wants to know more about the dishes and the urban gardens.
Last year, more than 200 people participated in the harvest festival where migrants can meet other people.
A cultural exchange is evident thanks to the work of the social promoters, who perform different activities such as the exhibition of traditional Cantabrian games or the tasting of the vegetables analysing their particularities (flavour, texture, acidity) and exchanging seedlings and seeds to be planted next year.
