Ready Steady Grow at Cranbrook Community Food Garden

Saturday 5 May, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Cranbrook Community Food Garden are hosting a knowledge-sharing event for people interested in starting their own community gardens to hear tips and advice from some of the newer gardens in Bethnal Green.

There will be members of Parkview Estate and Poets’ Corner, who both have started community gardens recently, as well as interested community groups from other estates. Come along and meet some of our growing community over tea and cakes!

10.30am:
Arrivals and refreshments from 10.30 so we can start promptly at 11. Feel free to bring some cake, biscuits or fruit to share. We will provide some along with teas and coffees.

11am:
Poets’ Corner share their experience of starting their garden last year

11.10am:
Parkview share their experience of starting a small-scale garden on their estate

11.20am:
Q&A facilitated by Cranbrook; a chance to ask those burning questions about how to start a growing project on your own estate

12noon:
Action stations! A chance to put some of what’s been learnt into action – send those emails, make those phone calls, and see what seeds of change you can plant for your estate, starting today! We also welcome any helping hands round Cranbrook garden, so you can see how we work together and learn from each other as a community.

12.45pm:
Next steps (how can we all support each other, where shall we meet again), thanks and goodbyes

1pm:
Event ends, though everyone is welcome to stay in the garden for as long as the day’s weather allows!
