Free LGBT cooking sessions

Free cooking sessions will be starting this autumn at Windmill Hill City Farm for people aged 50 plus who identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender (LGBT).

Charity LinkAge Network will be working with three city farms to run the Talking Tables Project – funded by Bristol Ageing Better.

Project Coordinator Caroline McDonnell says: “The sessions provide a safe and supportive environment for older LGBT+ people to build confidence and engage in an activity that enables them to meet and socialise with other local people.”

Director at Diversity Trust, Berkeley Wilde says: “LGBT+ people have told us that LGBT+ safe-spaces are vitally important for people to be able to explore a wide range of themes, and so we hope Talking Tables will do exactly this.”

LinkAge hopes by running the cooking sessions at the city farms participants will gain skills and knowledge to “cook nutritious and tasty food, as well the opportunity to enjoy the open air and harvest produce”.

Sessions at Windmill Hill City Farm will take place every Tuesday from 9 October to 13 November 2018, from 10am – 1pm.
