Supporting communities to crowdfund for projects which matter to their neighbourhood.
Kingdom Forest Garden is growing! It is growing in numbers of volunteers and the plants are getting steadily bigger. We need more plants though - to fill the spaces and to work towards completing our perennial food-growing objectives. Local people meet here every week to grow edible perennial plants such as fruit trees, fruit bushes and herbs. This space is used to demonstrate forest garden techniques, give people a source of new plants and to give the local community and volunteers some crops to feed their families upon.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project will bring people together to work, harvest, learn, play, meet and share plants. The site is used already for connectivity, to appreciate its beauty and as a meeting point and local venue for informal gatherings. Kingdom Forest Garden is an open site where anyone can stop and enjoy the plants or become more heavily involved in the work here. The Forest Garden is much loved already, but it has plenty of work needed to complete it. Regularly meeting to carry this work out brings us all together more often and with purpose. We enjoy each other's company and engage with each other lives frequently. Kingdom Forest Garden will bring great pleasure to local people, passers-by and visitors to the area; it already does, but it has a long way to develop before reaching its full potential.
