Refreshing Alkaline Smoothie

I realise this may not look like everyone’s ‘cup of tea’, but this smoothie is perfect and refreshing for a hot summers day!
Inspired by Ross Bridgeford’s The Alkaline Diet Recipe book:

Two sticks of celery
Half a cucumber
1 avocado
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger
Couple of sprigs of mint
Can of Biona coconut water or 300mls cold water

Blend until smmooooth

Really, this is delicious!

FOOD FAIR Wollaston Courtyard Sept 20th

Look forward to seeing our lovely Courtyard filled with foodie stalls!

We are working hard in the Wollaston Courtyard Events Team to ensure our next big event, Wollaston Courtyard Food Fair, on September 20th is a great success for the participants and our community.

Today I am Scouting for food producers in the #Northants/North Bucks/Beds region. Honey, Cheese, & speciality food producers in particular. If you would like to take part or know a local food producer who would be interested in joining us – please do get in touch with me by email, or via the website!

We are putting together a great line-up and hope that our local Cheese Maker Gary from Hamm Tun Cheese, of Cobbler’s Nibble fame, might be able to drop in to talk to customers about his exciting new Northamptonshire business and his delicious washed rind cheese. Should be a really good day.

Back online! News from eye2eye

We have been battling with internet connection for a couple of months here, and a lot has happened at the shop to tell you about.

First eye2eye took on the whole lease for Unit 2 in the Courtyard at the beginning of May, which has provided a space for development of Arts & Crafts courses.
It has long been my wish to combine my passion for Fairtrade, with my love of art and design. So this is a great opportunity to bring those two interest together in one place.
As part of the development, My husband & I have built a large work table from salvaged timber, and I am currently in the process of decorating the table top with a mosaic. At approximately 1mtr x 2mtrs it will take a few weeks to complete, but it is an enjoyable process.

Our first courses leaflet is up and running and we kicked off with a great Mono printing course last week. More courses are planned and will be run by experienced makers, with a passion for teaching and passing on skills.
Please get in touch if you would like to receive more information.

I have also linked up with Denise from Green Garden Craft, who is adding fresh herbs to the locally sourced fruit and veg we have at eye2eye shop and regionally made craft work, which sit comfortably alongside Fairtrade products in the shop. Some of the crafters are based just a few steps from our door in the village.
Being hand-made many items can be made to order for a special occasion, or by commission.

Also. . .
Our new Courtyard Events leaflet for the next 6 months is also with the printers. I will post more information about this very soon.
