Unfortunately this project was not successful.

Here at Fur Clemt we have built a community space that brings together local people to share a meal made from food that would otherwise have been wasted. As a Real Junk Food project we care about our environment and our community and work towards reducing edible food reaching landfill and educating people on how best to reduce their own food waste. Understanding how our food grows and the resources that go into its production will contribute to our education program. In addition we feel that by making our growing place a peaceful, welcoming and  thoughtful space we can provide people with a refuge from day to day stress.
