New raised bed for Premier Inn garden

This photo shows thee elation of the team after successfully managing to remove a large root ball to make way for the building of a new raised bed on the Premier Inn eco garden. This will help us to grow more food on the site next year.

You are welcome to come and join us in Sunday 9th (1pm-3pm) to help us put together the wood frame that will be needed to construct this bed.

A blessing on the fruits of our labours

A few of us had a wonderful experience on Sunday. We had been invited to attend a blessing at our food growing site, the Fruitery, and were amazed to find that around 50 people and lots of kids from both the vicarage and synagogue next door had come together to bless our site in a multi faith service. It was extremely touching and very beautiful to think that one of our food growing spaces generated the energy, enthusiasm and sense of community, to have our local faith leaders organise a multi faith service attended by a mixed community. I wonder if the church and synagogue had ever actually conducted such a service before? TB was really given alot of commendation and thanks.

Ecofuntastic Clubs come to NW3!

The education group is proud to announce that this term we have started four new Eco clubs at our schools in NW3.

On Mondays after school, 15 kids from Fitzjohns school meet to have an Ecofunastic time making potions from local ingredients, weaving willow, building camp fires, chopping wood, working on our re-makery project, learning and experimenting with renewable energy, and a host of other great fun activities. On a Tuesday, the club runs at St Paul's, Thursday after school the club runs at Northbridge House, which we are particularly excited about as it is great to be working with the older kids. On Friday, the Dig It Club concentrates on growing food at St Paul's and capping the two gold medal awards picked up at Camden in Bloom this year.
