Growing Andover – Community Plant Nursery
Project Category: Informal community group
We have recently [Spring 2015] started a Community Plant Nursery on a derelict former games pitch on the Andover Estate, off Seven Sisters Road just west of Finsbury Park station. This community-led project aims to inspire local residents and friends to get gardening, provide training and pathways to work for young people and others, foster a spirit of enterprise and bring all ages together in healthy activities that improve our wellbeing and beautify the environment.
There will be lots of opportunities to get involved and volunteer – starting with our Andover Goes Green day on Thursday 28th May to coincide with this year’s Soul in the City which runs till the Sunday on the estate and at other local venues.
We will be running plant stalls, gardening workshops and lots of green-themed activities and food. We have some funding from the Mayor’s Capital Clean-up community grant scheme to help our initiatives, and we will be giving the Nursery’s rusty old storage container a lovely green makeover with trellis and climbing plants. More news and contact details soon!
