IN THIS NEW YEAR feature we share not one but two case studies from our Global Garden, Global Kitchen - bringing you double the impact from one of our newest projects at the Selby Centre!
Since December 2012 the project has raised more than £13,000 from local people and a growing network of donors online to establish a multicultural community growing space at the Selby centre, encouraging local skills and food security. Almost all the changes to the garden shown here have been achieved by volunteers - including students, corporate groups and ex-offenders.
Sam “I was happy to hear about the plan, and to work with so many other volunteers because the changes I dreamed seemed possible. I’ve seen so many positive changes since and am proud to have been a part of a big journey.” Sam first came to the Selby Centre for IT training with I Can Do It, now 5E providing employment support as part of the Work Programme in North London.
