Our Journey

Croydon Saffron Central
Croydon Saffron Central joined London hive1 month ago

Croydons name derives from the Anglo Saxon 'Croh Denu' meaning "Crocus Valley". It is widely believed that Saffron was farmed here by the Romans. Croydon Saffron Central is a pop up Saffron Farm that will spread its corms throughout every ward of the borough after its first harvest. Friends of Parks & Community Groups will be invited to take the Crocus Sativus to their respective wards where they can cultivate & distribute in their local communities. Every Croydonnian should take pride when they see a Crocus in bloom, but especially when it's a Crocus Sativus (The Saffron One!). This project is an community educational tool as the Saffron Crocus blooms in the Autumn & not the Spring. Now is the time to plant the corms and reap their golden stigmas!!
