The Growing Cooking Sharing archive is a travelling community workshop resource. Developed based on an idea from Social Housing Arts Network artist & writer Sarah Butler, the archive gathers recipes, planting tips and food stories created by communities in Bolton where Sarah ran workshops on the theme of feeling at home. The workshops created dialogue among participants through the sharing of recipes, stories and meals together. The archive is interactive and participants are invited to both add and take away the cards. Text in English, Swahili and ‘Hinglish’ (phonetically written Hindi) translations.
