This is the page for Growing in Haringey - a working group of the Sustainable Haringey Network

As a group we try to link together communities who are managing growing spaces around the London Borough of Haringey.
Contact Pamela Harling pjharling@hotmail.com.
We can hold grant money for you in our bank account if your group does not have one.

We hold regular Gardener's lunches in the Eco-Hub at Lordship Rec (Lordship Lane N22) the website for the Friends of Lordship Rec http://lordshiprec.org.uk/.
Dates for 2016 are 26 July, 23 August and 27 September. 12.30 - 2pm. All welcome. Followed by Lordship Rec Wildlife Group practical conservation gardening activities, 2pm onwards, for those who want to join in during the afternoon.

On a Sunday each month we have a stall at the Tottenham Green Market for plant and seed sales. The next stall is on 21st August.

Growing in Haringey is a member of Sustain - the alliance for better food and farming and London Food Link see their websites for news about food issues in London. We are also a member of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens, which has regular news about funding schemes and training courses - here.

We also organise regular seed swaps. The first one this year was on 5th March at The Wellside, Tottenham Green and included a seed bomb making workshop run by Cob in the Community with seeds from the Grow Wild project.
