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 now 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. Bring food or buy at the community café.

Sorry we did not make it to the Tottenham Green Market yesterday - just too windy!

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.

There is currently a move to set up a fruit harvesting network in Tottenham, focusing on finding pickers & pickable trees in N15 & N17 this year. Please spread the word thru your community groups & residents' associations.
If anyone's interested in harvesting or knows of trees (private or public) that would appreciate being picked, put them in touch with me & I'll compile lists.
