believe the project will have a positive focus creating a sense of
well-being, achievement and cohesion in the community.
Big Lottery Fund distributes half of the National Lottery good cause
funding across the UK. The support for the this project comes from
the Awards for All programme which aims to enable others to make real
improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need.
award received will allow us to deliver a series of weekly organic
gardening and cooking sessions, providing a safe controlled space
where a variety of local groups will gain hands-on experience in the
workshops will include: cooking a variety of dishes from the veg
growing in a simple outdoor kitchen (to be built); learning about the
benefits of wild plants and herbal first aid; seed sowing and saving;
companion planting; learning how to tend and care for fruit and
vegetables; crop rotation and soil fertility. Participants
include women from minority ethnic communities (BME) who have
experienced domestic violence and people who are affected by mental
health issues. Groups include Awaz Utaoh Asian's Women group, Wild
Goose, Rethink & Terrence Higgins service users.
will be held between May-November 2012. When
the project is over, we hope that the participants will be confident
enough to take ownership of the space and continue to help make it a
welcoming place for the local community.
addition to the gardening workshops Trinity are seeking people
interested in sustainable building to initiate the outdoor kitchen
that will complement this project. The
building of the outdoor kitchen will run as separate workshops
throughout the summer. We have selected an experienced workshop
leader to run the workshops who has successfully run similar projects
in other areas. These sessions will provide open, drop-in access for
the wider community and will be appropriate for all levels, with the
aim of encouraging people to become more active in their community
and gain some sustainable building skills.
