After a couple of park visits with Rakesh and about 15 people, here’s a few of the Forest Garden (part 1) trained folk delighted with this piece of land to start the Valentines Park Forest Garden. It’s a patch of land to the left of the Brisbane Road entrance, with the Cran Brook running underneath. It is part of a wildlife corridor with the designated wildlife area to the right of the entrance.

I’m very happy for this project to go ahead. I needed to be sure that this project is going to have enough volunteers and local interest, and I feel confident that it has. Simon Litt, Valentines Park manager

There are more training courses with places we want to fill. Forest Garden online design course part one, and part two. Please contact Rakesh of Roots N Permaculture for more information or email/text us. This course and this project is very exciting and…

We want to find and harvest far more Ilford folk – help us find those who are ripe for the picking and want to join the courses in October and November/December
