    The label says the word for onion in Luganda: Obutungulu. We are growing onions in our community garden in Trafford.

    We love gardening. I spoke in Hungarian& Romanian about what we grow in our garden in Arad, Romania. Growing up I used Hungarian with my mother and Romanian with my father. These days I don’t use Hungarian very often and it’s not always easy to find the right words. I also said a few things in Romanian.

    Chiar este nevoie sa invatam mai multe despre plante, despre viata lor si despre felul in care ne putem bucura mai din plin de ele. Mult succes!

    MAES Sustainability & You class at Powerhouse

    During one of our Sustainability & You classes at the Powerhouse Library in Moss Side (Manchester) we talked about growing our own food. We got some excellent tips on growing microgreens together with some hands on experience of growing from seed.
    By the way, our class is about a 10 minute walk from where Leo Grindon lived and taught others about growing their own food.

    Notes on culture
    It’s probably not surprising to many people that food is a very significant part of Italian culture. Italian cuisine is well-known all over the world and Italians are usually very proud and protective of their local dishes. However, what may be less expected is the fact that many Italians grow their own fruits and vegetables. As a matter of fact, recent research by Coldiretti/Ixè showed that 6 Italians out of 10 grow vegetables on their balconies, on terraces or in their gardens. These practices have substantially increased in popularity, so much so that cultivated areas in Italy have reached 174 million square meters. Moreover, larger Italian cities have started following the example of other European countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands, and decided to set up shared vegetable gardens for the local communities. These communal gardens present a great opportunity to foster forms of aggregation between citizens and to ensure the upgrade of green areas in the city.
    Many of my own family members grow fruits and vegetables. My father is a big fan of chili peppers, so he always grows at least 3 or 4 assortments on his terrace and then uses them to add spice to all sorts of dishes. My mom on the other hand really enjoys citrus fruits so she has a small but very fruitful lemon tree. She uses lemons for many things, but most commonly she uses it to make lemon and ginger tea, which is healthy and delicious. However, the most prolific gardener in my family is my great-aunt. Throughout my life, I have seen her grow all sorts of fruits and vegetables on her balcony, the most common being tomatoes, basil, mint and even strawberries!
