Jamie Oliver’s Kitchen Garden Project offers fresh workshops for all the family to get their hands dirty
The Kitchen Garden in association with Daylesford Organic Farm is the place to come for a taste of the good life, with contribution from Jamie Oliver Kitchen Garden Project, Garden Organic and The Oxfordshire Gardener. Jamie Oliver will be presenting his Make n Shake Salad session and Garden Organic will be on hand to show guests everything they need to know about composting, whilst RHS qualified Oxfordshire Gardener will give demonstrations on how to grow their own kitchen garden – no matter how much (or little) space they have. There’ll also be the opportunity to discover the world of hen-keeping, along with fresh apple juice pressing and cider making. Jamie Oliver’s Kitchen Garden project aims to arm children with the skills they need to prepare meals from scratch and the knowledge to make better food choices for themselves and their future families.

Celebrating three of the things closest to both Jamie and Alex’s hearts – food, music and family – in order to raise funds and awareness for Jamie Oliver’s Better Food Foundation, The Big Feastival takes place on Alex’s farm on September 1st and 2nd and is two days of tasty grub, awesome music performances, a chilled out vibe and general all-round, family-friendly, fantastic entertainment.
As Jamie says: “When you get great food, great music and the kids are kept busy, beautiful things definitely happen”.
Good food, good music and good times for the whole family
