Empowering people to improve their green spaces, enhance their environment, and boost wellbeing.
Linacre Court is a diverse estate, with 30 or more languages spoken in our estate and our residents we spend time in each others flats, teaching each other how to cook food from countries from all over the world. We also have a community garden , where children and adults have been growing Tomatoes, Onions, Potatoes, Chard, Spring Onions, Chillies, Leeks, and various herbs and we want our residents to cook amazing dishes together. We currently run a food bank for families and single people who are struggling to pay bills as well as eat well, and when our new community centre opens we will create an international community kitchen where people can learn how to cook. The funds raised in this crowdfunding campaign will be used to kit out the kitchen with a Fridge and freezer, Large cooker, and various kitchen equipment.
