Monday 16th October, 19:45 for 20:00: “Growing Beans: A Diet for Healthy People & Planet”, a Zoom presentation by Susan Young

Susan’s new book “Growing Beans: A Diet for Healthy People & Planet” encourages looking at growing and eating shelled beans, fresh & dried, as they have numerous benefits for us and our home planet.

Originally trained as a pianist and with degrees in music, education and biological anthropology, Susan Young’s career has spanned many years teaching in schools and universities. Retirement from academic life allowed her to devote more time to gardening and growing vegetables. She’s lived for the last 20 years on two acres in the Wye Valley, on the English-Welsh border, part of which she gardens and the rest maintains as a wild flower meadow. But it was the pandemic and lockdown, a time to reassess and reconnect, that prompted her to write a book based on a passion for searching out and growing beans.
