Bold Vision Common Growth

Over 40 hardy people made it through the rain to join us for our consultation meeting on community food production on Telegraph Hill. The organisers will be circulating information about the event and the next steps but here are a few personal highlights:

  • strong will to work together on this rather than chopping the land up into individual plots. More company, more teamwork, more skill sharing, more food
  • lots of interest in food production, soil improvement, rainwater conservation, bee keeping, composting, skip gardens…
  • support for the idea of a dispersed community garden – centred on the Sandbourne Road but with pieces all over the hill – unused scraps of land and currently underused gardens
  • some excellent sources of inspiration and learning – Green Shoots on our doorstep and many other projects around the country

All in, an excellent example of our Bold Vision values in action (living with openness, mutuality, potentialising and courage)
