Launch of our new Grower’s Pack by Transition Town Brixton-a great resource:

‘How to Get a Community Garden Growing’

This 15 page guide to establishing a community garden in and around Brixton is full of information. From ‘first things’ to finding land, from soil to skills, from insurance to involving others, it has lots of advice and links to resources.

The guide has been written by members of the Food and Growing Group using their experience over the last year in setting up community gardens. To those involved in its production, apologies for the delay in finalizing it, we have had difficulties with file formats. We are very grateful to Chris Rodier for sorting this out for us.

To encourage the establishment of more gardens we would love to make it widely available, so please download and print out a copy for your local group. Or collect a copy from the shop (they aren’t there yet, but will be soon when we have arranged printing).  It can be downloaded from our website:

Best wishes and hope to see you soon,

Coordinators Katy Press, Katy Thompson and Penny Noy
