Markfield House and Stamford Close Gardening Project
Growing food, flowers and communities
On 4th March, following LUOS’s consultation on the estate, residents met to agree the design and terms of reference for launching an 18 plot community garden supported and funded by Homes for Haringey.
On 22 nd April, the Big Dig Day, the growing beds were allocated with 59 residents of all generations, enjoying the launch, helping to dig and plant food and flowers – and getting friendly with their neighbours. They are now meeting regularly to support each other and look after the garden.
Some residents are also active in the Friends of Stamford Road Park group, making them sister projects.
