Are you part of a community group that is looking for material to start your growing project but can’t afford to buy new items? Then we may be able to help you. LCRN and Growing Southwark are working together with the Royal Horticultural Society to capture as much unwanted material from the gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show as possible in order to redistribute to groups in need. With the help of dedicated volunteers, we will spend the week after the show ends to collect timber, compost, woodchip, bricks and plenty of other gardening material that would otherwise go to landfill. Then, from early June, the material will be offered for free to eligible community groups. The criteria are simple: your growing project must be open to the general public within your community and we will prioritise groups that have little or no funding; you will also need to arrange your own transport.

To find out more or to get a copy of the application form, please contact Edouard Guidon at LCRN on 020 7324 4703 or at or download it from here and email it to Edouard.RHS Chelsea material distribution form 2010
