The Global Garden at Selby Centre community garden brings a wide range of benefits for our people and local community – from connecting members of our community with each other, to growing fresh food to enjoy and volunteering opportunities.
This directory pulls together local contacts, organisations, and resources that should be useful for gardeners and food growers in Tottenham and beyond. Whether you are looking for places to visits, volunteering and training opportunities, garden suppliers, information about food growing in the community and schools, or sources of funding, we hope this page will help you find what you need.
The gardening team at Selby Trust aims to update this Resources Directory regularly. Please do let us know of other local resources that should be on this list by getting in touch.
