Covid-19 and our gardening - please read

A celebration of food growers in Lambeth in 2020

Donna, styles gardens

We have loved welcoming so many new growers to IEL this year and want to celebrate our combined harvest by inviting you to have a ‘moment in the spotlight’.

We will be running a zoom/webinar during Capital Growth’s Urban Harvest Festival week (18-27 Sept).  We would like to invite you to chat for two minutes about your growing experiences this year. GET IN TOUCH TODAY if you’d like to talk about your experiences..

One gardener commented to us “My garden has been like a second home over this covid-19 period of isolation and cut-off. A place to cultivate and be at one with Nature”. What has it meant to you?

Here are some suggestions for what you might like to talk about:

  • You could tell a story about someone you shared seedlings with

  • You could tell us about a new friendship you have made because of food growing

  • You could show us around your garden, and show off your achievements

  • You could simply tell us why food growing has been so important for you this year

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! We will be providing cash awards of £25 each to the first ten people who step up to tell us their story, as a way of saying THANK YOU to all our growers across Lambeth. Get in touch TODAY
