A Space 2 Grow is growing links with local groups and national networks and projects.
Recently our project was accepted as a member of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens . This is a national support network that offers advice, training, support and information to member organisations.
Rob Hunt met with local residents at the St Peters Action and Community Enterprise (SPACE) meeting. Ideas were discussed about ways to get local residents involved including conducting a survey or having BBQ to promote the project.
Other recent contacts being explored include Sunderland housing association Gentoo and world renowned Todmorden’s Incredible Edible (see video of Pam Warhurst in previous post). Also in the pipeline include plans for a fundraising walk from Sunderland to Lindisfarne, probably August.
Watch this space..!
