Fennel has a slightly sweet liquorice flavour that instantly livens any dish. Keep the leaves! Fennel fronds are perfect for sprinkling over salads or into soups and curries. Or why not get creative and make your own fennel pesto or brew a pot of fresh fennel tea?

As of now we’re in the Helena! Find us there tomorrow for the package free shop, and if you normally collect your package from Gymzaal, next Wednesday be sure to come to the Helena in the centre of the Hague at Helena van Doeverenplantsoen 3 (previously the Johan de Witt college). More info can be found here

Tomorrow there is also another open co-working day at the garden at Hoeve Biesland. Join the gardening team to plant lettuce, beets and herbs, and to clean the beds and wind up beans!

We hope you like this package again, please don’t forget to change your status before Sunday 20:00 if necessary.
