We want to grow a greener Britain by creating or transforming green spaces across the UK.
The park is located next to a number of large social housing estates. Clapham Park Estate, just over the road, is being redeveloped and large numbers of people will be moving into the area. There are three primary schools in the immediate area, plus a new secondary school soon to be developed. We already have some very committed volunteers giving their time to gardening in the park and they have told us they would like some support to run weekly gardening sessions which can help people grow some of their own food. We also want to help children better understand where their food comes from.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great idea because it promotes healthy eating and environmental sustainability. Regular gardening sessions are also a fantastic way for people to come together informally and work together. This helps develop friendships and promotes understanding between people from different backgrounds - it reduces social isolation.
Steps to get it done:
