Climate Change, Grow your own

This week Capital Growth announced an incentive for housing estates in London to get involved with growing their own food via community gardens:

“We want every housing estate in London to have a community food growing project, we want to see communities coming together to celebrate good food and we want Londoners to go to their local community garden and pick the potatoes for that night’s dinner. The Edible Estates Competition wants to encourage residents of housing estates to start a community food growing space or to enhance their community food growing space.

Capital Growth has been set up by the Mayor of London in order to transform London into a green and productive city, with thriving communities and delicious fresh food being produced in 2012 new community growing spaces by the end of 2012.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
