Charlton Community Gardens have been in touch to tell us about a plant sale they’re holding on Thursday 13 June at Charlton Station. It’s an opportunity to meet the people behind the Community Gardens project and check out the progress they’ve made. If you’re interested in finding out more, or getting involved (they need more help with their watering rota, for example), email charltoncommunitygardens [at] gmail.com.
The third open meeting of the Charlton Community Gardens project takes place from 7.30pm on Monday 25th February, at St. Richard’s Hall, Swallowfield Road, SE7 7NS.
The group’s aims are ‘to promote cooperation and support for everyone interested in sustainable and organic growing and wildlife diversity’, and they are working on leasing local land for ‘shared growing and learning together’. The meeting is an opportunity to find out what the project is all about, and hear about progress in securing the group’s first plot of land.
This will be the group’s first AGM; they would welcome new members on the Steering Committee, and there will also be a plant sale and raffle (with prizes including a mini greenhouse!).
If you’d like to find out more about getting involved, or put yourself forward for the Steeting Committee, the organisers can be contacted by email at: charltoncommunitygardens [at] gmail.com.
