Mill Hill East Community Garden
We plan to turn some wasted land next to our Community Centre into a Community Garden. This will be a free, open access space to bring together different parts of our community. We want to encourage all of Mill Hill East’s community, to be involved in the project throughout its development and to learn new skills to become gardeners in the future.
- There is a decrease in community spaces in Mill Hill due to house building, the lack of access to activities and services is a huge problem for local families. Through consultation we have discerned a need for more space to host families and events.
- We want the garden to provide a focus for some of the work we have started with young offenders. Currently we've helped provide a space for early intervention work. We want these young people to be involved in the whole project and learn new skills.
- We run several activities for Seniors. We are targeting those isolated and lonely within the local area. This group are excited by the project and we want to harness their enthusiasm and encourage them to share their gardening knowledge with others.
How we will achieve our goals
We are currently unable to afford to build this community garden within our own fundraising so we are looking to your community award to allow our vision to become a reality and change the lives of those in the surrounding area.
Where the money will go
By involving all the people that we support in our community work in the garden project. This includes providing new skills and opportunities for those our centre currently touches including homeless people, seniors, vulnerable adults and teenagers, families and children. Skills to learn and a space to enjoy, open and free to everyone, every day.
