Current Growing Projects Sept 2010
Help bring more land in Brixton into production, learn and exchange gardening skills and have fun gardening together. We have two projects to join in with:
1. Age Concern ‘Gardening@Vida’s – establishing demonstration gardens and a gardening club near Windrush square
Wed afternoons, 1.30 – 4.30 at the Vida Walsh Centre: 2b Saltoun Road, SW2 1EP
Light gardening, seed swapping, garden design etc – what would you put in a demonstration garden in the middle of Brixton?
Just turn up (sorry no under 16′s at the moment) or call me for more info (Penny, see below) or contact Erica on the project dirt site. I also need someone to share organizing this or as a stand-in for when I can’t be there.

2. Off Brixton Water Lane – bringing an unused overgrown garden back into use.
Tuesday and Saturday afternoons during September and October, 3.00 – 5.00.
Some heavy digging clearing weeds and rubble, but also lighter work sieving, either just as a short term project or to follow through to next year’s growing season.
Ring Mike on 07860 346 996 to make arrangements.
