Free Community Champion training on 28th May E5 Roots has successfully applied to be part of the Edible East programme. This project helps community gardening groups in east London to transform disused spaces. We will be assigned a community gardener and receive help running gardening workshops, sustainability events and celebrations for residents over the next six months.
Edible East are holding a Community Champion training session on 28th May at 6-8pm (venue TBC) and E5 Roots has a couple of allocated spaces available. If you would like to come along email Danielle (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of the week (17th May). Places allocated on a first come, first served basis. Training is open to people of any age, with or without gardening experience and will cover:
- Group capacity building
- Long term sustainability of the project
- Networking * Question and Answer session
- A chance to meet other Edible East sites and share skills and knowledge.
Now that we are part of Edible East, it’s a great time to get involved with E5 Roots – even if you haven’t before. We’d love to welcome more volunteers to help us make the most of this great opportunity, by helping us with planning and organising the group’s activities. You will need to have a bit of free time and be enthusiastic about growing food on the Jack Watts estate alongside other residents. Email Zee, Ellen and Danielle at this email address to find out more.
