Food Growing in Lewisham Schools


St Winifred's School Garden



We had a successful quarterly network meeting on 15th June looking at food growing in schools and projects working with young people and food more generally.


St Winifred's School kindly hosted us and showed us around their amazing garden (see photos).


This is an exciting emerging area of work in the borough with lots of projects happening. The meeting connected people up to find out about each other's work and we'll stay in touch to share resources, funding opportunities, to see how we can work together etc.


Please see the minutes of the meeting below which explains why we chose this topic, outlines lots of local projects, people's ideas for what they'd like to see in the borough and resources.
