BBC1's Inside-Out Programme is featuring the Selby Trust with partners Spacehive on our new Global Garden project and how we are using innovative Crowd-funding to make it happen.
It's an exciting time as we continue to raise funds for our new Global Garden, Global Kitchen project using crowd-funding with our friends at Spacehive - meaning that we can generate funds online, pooling small amounts of money from multiple donors to raise the £11,500 needed to transform the Selby Site into a multi-cultural, dynamic food garden and learning hub.
Following a week of filming in December as we launched the project live, we are excited to announce that the project and partners will be featured on the upcoming Inside Out Programme for BBC1 on the 14th of January 2013. Hungry? Get a taste of the project here and discover how you can help us deliver a great project for Tottenham with a global twist and local impact.
The Global Kitchen will take a key role as the third addition to our Green Hub, working alongside the rapidly growing Wood Works Wonders and Community Energy Lab - delivering cooking classes, selling produce and offering hands-on horticultural skills for healthy living.
As a tool for creating jobs and promoting cultural inclusion, the project will help generate opportunities for skills training and work for historically excluded groups at a pivotal time in Tottenham’s growth.
Log in to the site at https://spacehive.com/selbytrustglobalgarden where you can find more information and a detailed overview of how we'll use the money to bring a delicious new twist to our communities.
By combating exclusion and isolation of BAME and disabled people, the project will reflect our motto of 'Many Cultures, One Community' as well as also providing a range of global foods and produce that you won't find anywhere else.
The Selby Trust lies at the heart of some of the most disadvantaged wards in Tottenham, Haringey and actively encourages community development, job creation and engagement with BAME, disabled and other minority groups. It has been awarded the Social Enterprise mark and listed 66th on the RBS SE100 index. Almost 80% of Selby Trust funding is self-generated. We are continually focussing on developing innovation and enterprise in the community - most of all, we support you in the places where you live and work.
