Well we are Off! The Lambeth Food Growing programme has launched last Sunday at the fantastic Roots and Shoots Environmental Education center at Waterloo. The weather remained dry and the sun shone down to inspire some lovely conversations and ideas for the forthcoming food growing season. We had some more sign ups for our newsletter and email lists, we reminded those to fill in our on-line survey and of course we made some new friends!
A big Thank You to Dr Jens Lachmund from Maastricht University, Netherlands for popping along and sharing his news of community gardens in Germany and the Netherlands with us. We look forward to his report on food growing in Lambeth.
After an afternoon of chat and some some down to earth home made curry from the center’s cafe we piled in to view the documentary film ‘Grow Wild Thing’ which is a campaign to get children outdoors more and interacting with Nature..A very interesting film and well worth a view and your support but hey! where is there more of a connection than teaching your children than to grow their own food. Stay inspired and watch this space!
