Organisation aims / mission / values
Community space. We are committed to developing a sustainable community project with a kitchen garden at its heart; working with residents and partners to run activities and shape the project.
Education. We are committed to different forms of outdoor learning - facilitating volunteering, nature play and training programmes in gardening.
Natural food production + distribution. We are committed to the social, health and ecological benefits of natural food growing, through which we aim to produce affordable, culturally-diverse foods for sale, and distributed through education programmes and community partners.
Values. We operate according to the following values:. 1. Gardens in the city can bring people together from all walks of life to support community well-being. 2. Diverse leadership of the organisation. 3. Collaboratively working with community partners to share skills, resources and ideas to engage with social issues. 4. People care, self-care and land care. 5. Natural growing practices and using sustainable materials.
How we deliver these aims
We run an inclusive volunteer programme for all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds. Where people come together to grow food, share and learn skills. Meet and make friends which in turn reduces isolation and increases well-being and confidence.We have worked with 3 schools so far this year developing learning through nature play where the pupils planted vegetables, made scarecrows and a bird bath and mini pond. This year our aim is to match the 500 volunteer opportunities that we provided in 2018.
Who benefits from our work
Our Volunteers and school pupils all benefit from having access to an urban woodland space and access to healthy fresh foods which they all had a hand in producing. We also benefit from sharing and developing a safe, fun and productive space for the local community.
