Sara from Hen Corner will be bringing a couple of her friendly hens along with some produce from her urban smallholding, Hen Corner, in Brentford.
Together we will be exploring where our food comes from, understanding that everything we eat used to be alive, be that from a plant or an animal. With a slideshow and interactive presentation, we will look at how many foods can be produced from home.
Whether it’s welcoming guests to our courses or working with schools, Hen Corner is bringing together the country and the city, helping you turn your urban corner green.
Over recent years Sara Ward and her family have transformed their Victorian terrace house into an urban smallholding allowing them to have the best of both worlds. Nestled in West London, they are living the good life complete with 22 hens, three colonies of honey bees, a fruitful kitchen garden and a micro bakery which is making up to 100 loaves of bread each Friday along with hundreds of sticky buns, cakes and savoury treats.
Whilst Sara and the family continue to expand their hands-on skills, they train and encourage others through their schools programme, writing, and series of courses that are run from Hen Corner throughout the year. Be it jam making, wood carving, bee keeping or bread baking, there’s always something new that we can learn.
