Lewisham has over 80 Community Gardens providing a range of growing spaces within schools, community centres, businesses and housing areas. Managing these gardens themselves offers a valuable opportunity for Lewisham residents to join together in not only growing food, but also in contributing skills such as managing volunteers, fundraising and committee roles.
If you are a keen grower, and are looking for a challenge, then a potential further growing site has been located within the grounds of MountsfieldPark with funding provided for basic infrastructure and set up costs.
At this stage we would like to gauge initial interest from residents who may, with some initial guidance and support, wish to set up and run a community food growing space in this area.
< Are you a keen veg grower with great gardening skills?
