Cooking equipment and supplies needed

As well as gardening we offer cooking activities often using produce that has been grown on site. This gives our Gardeners valuable lifeskills. So we need kitchen equipment for them to use:
Non-stick frying pans
Non-stick milk pans
Kitchen Scissors
Small paring knives
A swing bin
A small kitchen compost bin
A small stool/step to help reach the top kitchen cupboards

With so many Gardeners and Volunteers - there are a lot of teas and coffees to make each day! 
So these items are always useful:
Instant Coffee Granules
Tea Bags (Regular tea)
Granulated Sugar
Family boxes of Biscuits
Kitchen Rolls

And these!
Toilet Rolls

Help us create an Alpine Border

One of Lindengate's latest projects is creating an Alpine Garden . The design will feature lots of mini Alpine beds in containers, set within a larger alpine border. To realise this design we need many interesting containers, plus rocks and stones to go in the containers - we're particularly interested in slate
Here are some photographs from RHS Wisley of alpines planted in containers, to give you an idea what we're trying to do. If you have anything you think we could use, please call us on  01296 622443 or email Thank you!

Needed for craft project

Do you have any spare lime green/yellowy green wool at home that you no longer need? We're collecting it for a craft project which hopes to recreate the Lindengate tree
Update: Here is one of the finished art works - which looks amazing. Thank you for your help!
