Wolves Lane Nursery – lots going on

Wolves Lane Nursery is the old Haringey municipal greenhouses up by New River sports centre. There is a regular Sunday vegetable market, 10am-2pm; volunteering on Tuesdays (Palm House) and on Wednesdays (very active Friends group), 11am onwards. It’s now home to a consortium of local social enterprises including Crop Drop (which is advertising tickets for a Feast there on 4 October) and London Grown veggie growers. Running the site and bringing the greenhouses back into repair is a mammoth task, so they’d love to hear from potential volunteers or enterprises interested in renting space there.

Help Wolves Lane raise money for solar power

The Wolves Lane community food hub and palm house is starting a crowdfunder to raise money for solar power so that we can have a secure source of free, sustainable energy. This will help with the cost of heating the palm house and the cafe/meeting space. Please contribute to appeal

Friends of Bruce Grove Cloud Garden

Help secure this important site for history and nature. The green open space behind 7-9 Bruce Grove, Tottenham, is an important site for nature in the only ward in the borough that has no park or public green space. It is also behind Haringey’s only official Blue Plaque – the house of Luke Howard, the man who named the clouds.
Please show you support for securing the site for nature and public enjoyment.
