MCG believe that a healthy, connected community is a strong one.
Passionate about fresh food, particularly vegetables, and getting real exercise through working outdoors. MCG offer advice on cooking methods that retain nutrients in food, the value of eating raw food, and herbal tea. Demonstrate how to bake your own bread, make fruit cordials and mayonnaise rather than purchasing commercial products full of preservatives, fats and colourants.
The aim is to help everyone in the community to make better decisions regarding sourcing food, clothes, energy and building materials with great emphasis placed on the benefits of using local.
Our inspring recipe book Mnandi – a taste of Mpophomeni was published in spring 2016. All proceeds of sales go towards supporting the Slow Food Community of Mpophomeni and providing free wifi in the vicinity of the library.
