Supporting community-led projects to help your local area recover from the COVID-19 crisis
Horsenden Grape and Honey farm project will enlist the active HAAGA Community, Schools, Scouts, NCS and local Community to transform a derelict plot of land to produce in due course, organic Grape juice and Honey production. With the help of CrowdFunding through SpaceHive London and Transform your Space (TYS) Ealing - we will be able to include an educational facility including a photo exhibition ' from seeds to bees to sale', which will capture the growing and production and raise awareness in the local community to each stage of the process. Produce will, eventually, be marketed to local schools, hospitals at cost to replace 'fizzy drinks' which will include generating the educational value of Horsenden G & H Farm.Organic honey will be marketed to Hay fever sufferers and Health conscious parents/residents across the local area.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We have great volunteer support and can transform this area for the benefit of local residents, families, schools and other groups. Horsenden Hill farm with its 'Gruffalo trail' and with the addition of an 'organic vineyard and orchard' could become a real focal point for Communities in Ealing, Harrow and Brent location is in Ealing but on the cusp of the other two Boroughs. With lives becoming more digital and families/schools having to tighten belts, a value-for-money free educational day out is a real possibility.
Steps to get it done:
The established HAAGA Association will provide the secretarial and administrative support to the project bringing in skills from local Residents that have already been mapped and are known to be available- e.g. project management, financial, marketing, agricultural and construction skills.
