Under 1 Roof has recently received funding from Norfolk Community Foundation (Greening our Community Grant) which enables them to do amazing activities for the people they support and the environment at the same time!
Members have been busy growing their own fruit & vegetables in the garden of Under 1 Roof (during Harvest Season). Under 1 Roof then decided that with the help of the funding they could create the ‘Living from the Land skills Courses’. Karla a professional chef who has worked across lots of St Martins services for years has taken some time out of her busy schedule on a Monday (and some Thursdays) to run a weekly cooking class to encourage more members to get into the kitchen and gain confidence! Four members each week help Karla in the kitchen to make a two-course meal based on the theory of living from the land.
Under 1 Roof is a training and development centre owned and run by St Martins. We offer support for vulnerable adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by offering opportunities to develop the skills that will help them to live independently within the community.
What a brilliant way to gain experience on how we can live just from the land with a yummy meal at the end all whilst helping the environment!
