Have You Tasted Goat Burger Before?.. At Send A Cow's Fab Taste Of Africa You Could Just Try One!
"Apart from the lovely smells and tastes that will be available there will be a five piece African band called Explosive Nzakomba, who will be running dance workshops and entertaining us on the outdoor stage. There will be workshops of all sorts from grass skirt making to making sustainable bag gardens, a market stall area where people can buy African crafts, jewellery and clothing, animal feeding and face painting." says organiser Send A Cow's Holly Perreau, of its Taste Of Africa event on 1 September at Bath City Farm.

"It’s going to be a fun family event open to anyone and a great way for us to engage the local community. It’s going to be really fun – live music, workshops, food, stalls and dance.
"We organised it as we wanted an opportunity for the youth involved in our current Summer Sessions project to be able to show the community what they will have been working on all Summer and also ,as I said, to engage the local community in the work of Send a Cow - after all we are only just up the road in Newton St Loe so Bath City Farm is the perfect place." says Holly.
Open to anyone and particularly appealing to families, this is a free entry event with donations made on the day very much appreciated by Send A Cow.
And Holly says coming along on the day will be a fantastic way to show support for the charity.
"Coming along to Taste of Africa would be a fantastic way to show your support and learn more about the work that we do. We are looking for volunteers to help on the day as well if you would like to be more involved, doing things like manning the stall, helping with face painting or leading a kids workshops (We have some great ideas but I can’t be in more than one place at one time)."
The charity's first project with Bath City Farm, Send A Cow are looking for more ways to work with the city farm. "The location and it being a farm make it a perfect link for us." says Holly.
"After Taste of Africa we will be working with local youth to maintain our African Garden and then later on in the year looking at how we can work closer with local University students.
"Thanks for your time – hope to see as many of you as possible at Taste of Africa! And of course if you’re ever near the farm then do pop in and take a look at how our African Garden is shaping up (down hear the chickens)."
