Great to the veg growing is spreading over to the Rockingham. Project Dirt is a great way of linking with other groups and an easy way to create a web presence.
We are here on Project Dirt which automatically updates from our main website.
Good luck! and keep in touch - Martin

Thanks Martin, I'll have to make use of that site. It looks a good one.

LilaSE1 the funding for the Meadow at St Matthew's is also cleaner greener funding. I was at the Borough and Bankside meeting and they didn't mention it so I'm not sure.

If you haven't got funding for the project you could always look at http://www.ustsc.org.uk/grant.htm for young/elderley people and social inclusion. One of the best socialy inclusive things is a communal garden project. It may only be a couple of grand but I'm sure we could all pull together to get something done.

Maybe, if successful, involve St Matthew's too?

And if there's still no luck you could always call on the guerilla gardeners: http://www.guerrillagardening.org/

Oh I forgot to say, the proposed area is by, I think it's called Whitworth House on Falmouth Road. There's a green space facing onto Falmouth Road. However there's no reason, depending on popularity not to extend that accross the green swathe between there and Rockingham Street. Hopefully it could link up with the new children's play area to the north and the Community Centre to the south.

Maybe even have some cookery classes at the Centre with the food just grown!
