Workshop:

Growing Together: Planning your year of food growing

Saturday 9th March 2pm-5pm

This workshop is a chance to learn how to plan your year of food growing using a permaculture approach. This means planning your planting for wherever you are growing (your balcony, garden, allotment etc) to provide food and habitat for both people and wildlife.  You will have a chance to work on your plan with the opportunity to ask questions.  The workshop is free to join but you will need to register by filling in the form at https://forms.gle/rVmdrAyXCitUeWoY9

 

Growing Together is a project where we grow fruit, vegetables and flowers together. We have free seeds that you can collect to start growing and we will support you with workshops to explain what to do. We want to grow together on windowsills, balconies or in gardens, sharing our experiences and knowledge.

Ecological wildlife-friendly garden

Welcome to our Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden. The garden provides a diverse range of edible plants with plenty of benefits for wildlife.

The Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden was established as a collaboration between Nubian Life, Permablitz London and Living Medicine.

 

The garden has a permaculture design and was installed by Permablitz London and filmed by BBC Gardeners’ World and broadcast in June 2018. The garden is one of Permablitz London’s showcase gardens.
