Reason for nomination:
The Tea Room is supplied by our own organic veg plots and polytunnels with soft fruit, vegetables and salad crops. We also use award winning local suppliers. A small changing menu means we don’t store huge amounts of food wasting as little as possible. Food waste in composted in our wormeries. The veg beds are tended to by volunteers from assisted accommodation and the long term unemployed - learning new skills to return to work.
