In the UK there are three types of vegetable-shaped homes: the traditional “big house”, the minimalist “mini-house” and the vegan “kitchen”, with each one offering a different range of kitchen utensils, storage, lighting and even a sink, all in the name of sustainability.
We’re all in for a treat in Bradford this summer, as the city’s first-ever Vegan Village is opening in the old city hall garden.
“This is the first time I’ve ever done a garden garden,” says the city council’s sustainability director, Sarah Harrison.
There are plenty of possibilities for the first ever vegan kitchen in Bradford, as well as a number of other garden-style developments planned for the city over the coming months.
In the summer months, there’s a garden in the city centre called “the Garden of Hope”, where you can enjoy fresh salads and fresh fruits.
Another option is to visit Bradford City Hall Garden, where you’ll find “the Vegan Garden” where you have the opportunity to try some of Bradford’s many vegan recipes and see what veganism can do for your health.
For the rest of the summer, there are plans to create a vegan “sugar room”, where vegan desserts and desserts with a focus on sugar are made.
Then there’s the Vegan Garden on the banks of the River Thames, which is set to become the first large-scale, non-profit vegetable garden in Europe.
It’s a place where you’re welcome to eat your own vegetables and take home some delicious vegan treats.
At the moment, you can find the garden on a first-come-first-served basis, with those lucky enough to secure a spot getting a slice of the pie, but there are also spaces available for groups of up to 10 people.
“We’ve decided that it’s better for the community to come together than to have people sitting on their own,” says Harrison.
“There’s a bit of a risk with the garden, we’re not able to take in any more people, so if we’ve got to go on for too long, it’s best for everyone if we do this at one time.”
“We’re in the midst of a very busy summer, so we’re always looking for opportunities for people to have a little bit of fun.”

Its layout will be similar to a traditional garden, with many of the kitchen’s elements located close to each other and within easy walking distance.
There are also plans to put together a kitchen with a garden-like area where you will be able to have some healthy food, including some of the recipes we featured last year.
There will also be a range of “kitchens” for you to choose from.
You’ll be able use a sink in the kitchen, but you won’t be able sit down at the same table as everyone.
The garden is open to the public, and you can book online here.
The “kitchn” will be open to all over the city during the summer and also open to anyone wanting to use it.
If you’ve got a spare bedroom available, there will be an area for you and your family to take a break, as there’s an open kitchen.
And the best part is, there won’t even be any space to sit down.
There is a kitchen space at the centre of the garden which is a lot like a typical “kit kitchen” with a kitchen sink and a sink to put your food in.
There’s also a place for you, your children and anyone else to gather.
You can also get a garden basket to share with your guests and there are plenty to choose to create some amazing food for the whole family.
The city council has been working closely with the local gardeners, who are also creating sustainable cooking for people in need.
“The gardeners are really encouraging us to get more people to come to the garden and to make it a regular thing,” says Amanda.
“They’re really passionate about this and we’re really excited about the potential that this is going to have.”
The vegan village is due to open on the third week of June.
The project will be launched in conjunction with the Bradford Green Week, which sees a number local businesses and groups come together to highlight the city as a green hub.
