At Veg-ucation our mission is to uplift and inspire through the joy of cooking and community. We create an environment where individuals come together to learn, share skills, and work collaboratively. 

Our in-person sessions create lasting memories and shared cooking experiences, suitable for all skill levels. And the best part is sharing the meal together afterwards



We aim to foster a supportive and social environment where people of all ages and backgrounds can share experiences, tackle social isolation, and build community cohesion.

By connecting individuals, we create strong, vibrant communities that thrive on mutual support and shared experiences.



We believe in nourishing both body and mind, building confidence, and improving physical and mental well-being. Our classic dishes with a  plant-based twist do just that!

Our quick, simple and budget-friendly recipes ensure everyone can enjoy our cookery lessons and demonstrations, whilst optimising health and those all important flavours too.



"Cheshire West Voluntary Action is delighted to recognise the outstanding work of All About Greens, particularly their contributions to the Cheshire & Merseyside Cancer Alliance funded project. Their engaging cookery sessions have made a significant impact in promoting cancer awareness and early detection.

Lisa has demonstrated exceptional dedication to reaching the most marginalised in our community through her collaboration with Tomorrow's Woman.  

 All About Greens has also extended their invaluable cancer awareness and healthy eating initiatives to Live! Cheshire, an organisation that supports people with learning disabilities and difficulties.

"Radiate Arts contacted All About Greens to deliver fun, social, and informative cooking sessions. Lisa is incredibly informative and hands-on, making it easy to learn how to prepare delicious and nutritious plant-based meals. Each session is packed with valuable tips on how to use affordable, everyday ingredients to create dishes that not only taste amazing but also provide significant health benefits.

One of the standout aspects of the program is the personal attention given to each participant. Lisa takes the time to understand individual health goals, dietary needs, and abilities, tailoring the sessions to ensure we get the most out of each event.

From the outset, Lisa worked with us to understand our group and our objectives.

Whether you're looking to improve your health, learn new cooking skills, or simply enjoy cooking and sharing delicious plant-based meals together, I would recommend All About Greens."

We consistently receive fabulous feedback from the women who attend the sessions, they remain one of the most popular sessions we run here, and they book up straight away. We can’t thank Lisa enough for her continued support.!"
