Over the past two years the resident led Unique Roots initiative has developed out of an Asset Based Community Development approach and has helped to connect the skills, knowledge, talents and resources within the Valley Park area with the aim of supporting a diverse range of community driven initiatives that aim to improve and strengthen local families.
An edible garden has been developed and residents are working together to grow food. The work has brought together residents and a range of stakeholders including the Acorn 2 Oaks which manages the nursery and the Peppermint Centre which is adjacent to the identified space. Social housing landlords Viridian, Hyde and Croydon Churches Housing Association manage the properties on the estate and the GP surgery all make referrals to the project.
