Community rallies to Edible Garden cause on St Raphs

Delicious veggie food proved popular
It was a beautiful early Autumn afternoon for the Edible Garden event on St Raphael's estate this afternoon. The initiative by Sufra NW London Foodbank and Well London involves the creation of fruit and vegetable growing beds in a space previously used as an engineering yard. The soil is contaminated so everything has to be grown in imported soil in high containers.

The initiative involves a Food Growing Group and a Cooking Group. Plans for the space include a polytunnel and a pond (frogs are great for snaffling up slug and snail eggs).

Children planted some broad bean seeds and onion sets
Face painting was as popular as ever
Work continued on lining the pond with sand while children enjoyed playing

Plans for the site
'Give Together - Eat Together'
