Grow to Eat the Rainbow - Master Class @ Online - via zoom

We’ve all heard the saying ‘Eat the Rainbow’ but is there any merit in these words? Turns out the scientific evidence to support the benefits of a colourful dietary intake are increasing. The word “Phyto” comes from the Greek language and means plant. Phytonutrients are natural compounds produced by plants that give them rich colours, distinctive tastes, and aromas.

Phytonutrients significantly impact the human body, providing health benefits that may help protect from chronic diseases. This session will equip you with some general principles to apply to your garden planning, planting, and harvesting as well as menu planning to optimise your health and wellbeing on an individual level in your home garden, local community garden or even just when shopping at a Farmer’s market or Greengrocer.

Please Note:

  • If you are unable to attend the live online class, a recording will be available to watch for five days following the session. Please purchase a ticket prior to the class date to access the recording.
