Paulette, Ernest, Corin and Kate took a load of plants and packets of beans to sprout at Wood Green Library as part of Go Green month, thanks to Sonja and the team at 4u2 Newsmag. Black Rootz demonstrated the benefits of sprouts in salads, enthralling workshops of local people who were eager to hear more. A great opportunity to teach people how to get nutritious, delicious food into their daily diet. More information about Black Rootz is here
