Greening The Other Place

Thanks to Sirona Foundation, we’re creating exciting new growing spaces in the front entrance, in the meeting room and in our back yard. We’ll be growing edible plants and, thanks to our expert team, the design will include innovative integrated composting and self-watering systems.
Would you like to help make the planting troughs or plan the planting? We’re also looking for volunteers who can help us care for all the plants. If you would like to get involved, please do get in touch.

Our public living room is open every afternoon, on weekdays (2pm-5pm, Monday to Friday). Come and relax, help yourself to a cuppa from our community kitchen and have a chat. We’d love to see you. (We’ve also  joined the excellent Camerados movement. Find out more and  spread the word!)
