New Cooking Garden
Nearby the Cooking Sala, we have a small area that we designed to make a herb garden. We grow vegetables that are very useful in our cooking such as basil, chili, aloe vera etc. As well as herbs, we also have an edible flower area that students can use to decorate their food when they have finished cooking.
Beside the Cooking Sala, we have prepared the box for students to compost food waste. Students will realize about the cycle of waste. Moreover, we found that composting can divert as much as 30% of food waste away from the garbage can.
The Cooking Academy makes Effective Micro-organism (EM) and uses this to make bio-degradable soaps and cleaners. These are used in the Cooking Academy and are sold at Community Market.
Community Market Day
Every first Friday in every month, we have Friday Community Market where you can come to buy local vegetables from the farmers around campus and also sustainable soap or cooked food. On market day the Cooking Academy will prepare cooked food, snacks or herbal teas to sell.
The Cooking Academy encourages participants to take responsibility for their learning, including responsibility for cleaning all equipment during the class. Opportunity is given to students who want to develop as leaders during CAS programmes. Cooking staff work with these students to help them plan and facilitate activities.
