The ACTIVATE team are coming to Strawberry Vale to help us re-launch the Green Man Garden Project, which aims to convert the patch of wasteland on the right hand side of the centre into a community garden for local resident and users of the Green Man. Mark Healey (Centre Manager) said “I’ve been set the task of getting the Garden Project back on track this year, and this is something that local residents want to see happen – 80% of residents supported the original plans for the Garden Project.
The Green Man Management Group have recently agreed Mark’s plans for the project, which include setting up a gardening group and organising regular community events for Strawberry Vale residents. “I hope that a lot of people will come along on Saturday, Activate London have provided us with some funding so that we can have some free refreshments and some free giveaways*, and I’d like to talk to people and get them excited about the gardening project”.
