Grow a Gardener is a project to help people in Hackney who want to learn how to set-up, manage and maintain a community garden. We run a regular course which is designed around our own experiences of running a community space and the needs of community gardeners. It includes practical and theoretical guidance combined with one-to-one mentoring for your project. There are also practical workshops and networking opportunities to meet our cohort of gardeners.
Topics covered in the course include:
- Design & building your space
- Legal issues
- Getting people involved
If you are interested in applying for a space on the next course or need support with a project please email us.
