Welcome to the Growing Gardens Project Lucy!
Lucy started in the gardens about a month ago and has been busy meeting all the volunteers and getting to know the project. Below is a picture of her up at our allotment space on Phipps bridge with two of our volunteers on a lovely sunny day.
A little bit about Lucy...
Growing up in South London, green space was hard to come by! Despite this, I have always absolutely loved being outdoors. I have countless childhood memories of visits to other worldly places (Streatham Common) searching for frogspawn and coming back a few weeks later to greet the tadpoles J As I grew older, I developed a passion for environmental and social issues and began a journey of learning how to engage and work with people in gardening.
Working at community gardens throughout London I soon noticed the therapeutic value of natural spaces and really enjoyed creating friendly community spaces and growing local organic veggies together!
I’m thrilled to have joined Deen City Farm as a community gardener this summer - the gardens are blossoming beautifully as are our wonderful volunteers and I love coming in to work each morning to the sound of the robins singing above the greenhouse.
