Is going to be creating grow gardens around the Round House and other spots on Lawson, fruit and veg, what a lovely idea for children to learn about the thrill of planting a seed and seeing the magic that nature creates. I think it's The Bankside Open Spaces Trust organising it.

so if anyone lives on or nearby the lawson, there was a number on the small poster near the Round House, could not quite make the number out, bit blurry from rain i think.

Hello Jan,

Yes it is Bankside Open Spaces Trust which are organising it under the Edible Bankside Project with the help from the lovely residents around the estate.
The number will be 020 7403 3393 or 07786 437 200 which is Hej the Facilitator of this project for BOST.

Wednesday 21st November is the date for the build when we welcome a corporate group and anyone else who wants to help out on the day building the first of the beds.

BOST will then be holding regular gardening clubs to help local residents learn how to grow and look after their new growing beds.

I have some seeds of various thingys, would you need them at all? probably veg and flowers? Unfortunately physical help is a bit beyond me at the moment!
