GiH can hold grant money for you in our bank account if your group does not have one.
We have recently bought water butts for Stellar House community gardeners. Think about using water wisely in this time of low rainfall. If your group would like water butts or tools do get in touch.
We have also made a donation to the Wards Corner campaign. https://n15developmenttrust.com/
Several groups took part in London Climate Action Week – Harmony Gardens and Wolves Lane. Why not think about doing an event for Great Big Green Week? 24th September to 2nd October?
We are taking a break over the summer but in the meantime – we would like to relaunch the GiH network – let us know your ideas for our future on our Facebook page. Thank you. Please get involved if you are keen to see more community food growing in Haringey.
Check out the Social Farms and Gardens website for details of events and training courses over the summer. https://www.farmgarden.org.uk/
