Here at Hen Corner, we believe that living life to the full is a gift and a privilege, and over recent weeks, we’ve embraced some changes that will hopefully facilitate growth in our projects and see many other people join us on the journey to live life to the full.
We were thrilled last year to see some of our course guests return for subsequent sessions allowing them to explore new topics, develop their artisan food skills and continue on their journey towards self-sufficiency.
We are looking forward to having a new kitchen installed that will help us with our food based courses and current thoughts include Afternoon Tea (make your own bread, scones and jam), Gift Hampers (biscuits, chocolates and preserves) alongside some seasonal sessions for young families where children can meet the animals and enjoy crafts and games. If you have other suggestions for us, do leave a comment below…
Whilst we have been supporting London schools for several years now, we will be broadening out our range of lessons to complement the curriculum for both Primary and Secondary school students; if we can help a school near you, let us know!
Coming up at the Corner
Our courses are planned right throughout the year giving everyone the opportunity for ‘A little bit of country life in London’.
This month we have our Toast and Marmalade Course on Wednesday 28th January, a whole day course introducing both marmalade making and baking bread.
Next month we welcome families to join us for Families, Feathers and Fun chicken keeping on February 28th.
Why not come and join us? All our courses are open for bookings, so whether you want to try something new or treat someone to a wonderful gift, have a look and book in early!
- We have been asked to participate in the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair with talks about Chickens and Bees and maybe some food demonstrations in their Spring Garden
- Chiswick Buzz have asked us for a recipe of the month that they can film and publish to encourage us to cook more seasonally
- Bunty, our Chocolate Orpington Bantam, has been chosen to be the surrogate mother hen this Spring. As soon as she is ready, we’ll get some fertile eggs for her to sit on, maybe some more Pekin Bantams…
Jobs for next week:
- Deliver a big order of honey to BAFTA, I wonder if they’ll use it for the Film Awards next month?
- Finalise my plans for half a day at The Holmewood School; we’re talking chickens, life cycles and animal welfare
- Write a brief to re-brand Hen Corner and develop a new website…
Join us on the Journey!
