nadia-flyers-no-2.jpgGREAT GROFUN NEWS!

I am thrilled to reveal that the charming folk at the Scarman Trust have awarded the community food-growing scheme called GROFUN £2000 of her highness’ hard currency with which to buy materials and tools for the building of stronger, relocalized urban communities! The money will go on wood, manure, spades, soil testing kits, water butts, composters, seeds, books and a video camera with which to make an educational short film about the project and how to set up such a thing.

I now need several more willing participants with a small, sunny area in their Montpelier garden and a couple of hours a week to tend a small patch of one, single crop. The outputs include learning new skills, meeting more people in your ‘hood’, a weekly supply of fresh, local produce, a renewed sense of self worth and plenty of exercise and fun. If you have friends in Montpelier, Bristol, please mention the GROFUN to them and get them to contact me on ASAP. Finally, if you have ANY time or materials to donate to the project, especially directly after Christmas, make contact today!
