Gardening project success

Our gardening group now offers 10 and 20 week courses. Run by the Mind Lift Gardening Project and Community Education Lewisham, there are currently two courses on offer - a practical class and a more theoretical one leading to work as a gardener. We plan to start growing crops we can use in our kitchen. We also have plans to erect a raised bed which will enable disabled clients to garden.


Paul Rhodes Bakery

We have recently formed a partnership with Paul Rhodes Bakery in Greenwich. To avoid waste, they donate bread which has been freshly baked that day but which has not sold. 'We always try to control the amount we waste and it's so good to be able to help the most vulnerable members of our local community at the same time,' said Valentina, Manager of Paul Rhodes Greenwich.
