This project is an initiative intended to bring together the communities in London as they learn about health and well-being in cultivating organic produce together. We plan on doing this by establishing seasonal community gatherings where horticultural professionals and enthusiasts deliver workshops around different topics of gardening, the environment and food growing. In doing this, we share the resource of knowledge and skills for each person to be able to grow their own food on their own private land. The initiative will also seeks to construct a central community organic food garden for where we will both grow food and plants, with the effort of the community. Furthermore, this project also seeks to extend this initiative into schools where children can immerse can learn practical skills and apply their knowledge or cultivation a school garden.
