To raise funds for a minibus to take them on trips to other growing and educational projects and places
About the project
This is a community Nature club for local children who are growing up on one of the poorest estates in europe...we have been up and running for almost a year...as I am a local resident running this project alone & there is such a high demand from the children themselves to learn, I have had to split the group into 2; children 8yrs &over and younger children.
The children have learnt about native trees and wild flowers, foraging and are now learning how to grow food, seed collect and save and fruit tree care and management. These are children who mostly refuse to eat vegetables but very curious about wilds fruit which they do eat. ie damsons bullace crab apples etc. I would love to be able to take them on trips to Kew gardens and other projects to broaden their horizons and for that we really need a minibus....
