If you’ve been following the updates that I have been writing over the last few months you will know that I run a community project in Melton Mowbray, The aim of the project is to convert some unused waste land in town The idea of the project Is to give people who don’t have the room or the time to grow in their own gardens the opportunity to come and grow fresh produce that they can take home to use and cook with. We already have a group of 8 people who have agreed to come and start growing on the site and are hoping that more families want to get involved to. We plan to hold a class once a month for children and parents to teach them about the veg we grow, where it comes from and how to cook it.
We will be clearing the site on 7th September with a group of 25 graduate volunteers from Mars UK plus 7 of my friends and family.
Before we clear the site and the real work starts I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone that has given their time, resources, money and most importantly support. This project could go a long way to helping a lot of people but it can’t survive without people helping run it.
We’re always looking for people who want to grow their own veg but don’t have the time or space or the know how, that’s what we are here for.
Get in touch if you want to get involved or want to donate resource or make financial donations to the project. If you already run a project like this I’d love to hear from you to.
