Community gardeners on Cranbrook took delivery of a
greenhouse, last weekend. Funded by Tower Hamlets Homes’
Making a Difference Fund, the new structure now means the community
gardeners can extend the growing season and produce home grown
fruit and vegetables all year round.
The garden project started when local
residents asked Tower Hamlets Homes if they could turn an area in
front of Modling House into an alloment for local residents to grow
fresh food. The idea grew and grew, and residents have built up a
thriving garden community, growing their own fruit and vegetables
and cutting down on their shopping bills.
“The garden is a great opportunity for residents to
learn how to grow their own produce, eat healthier food and meet
new friends. It’s a fantastic asset for all the community,” said
Laura, community gardener.
Cranbrook community gardeners hold a garden
meeting every fortnight, on a Wednesday. The next meeting is the
Wednesday 2 June. Local residents are welcome.
