GROW HEATHROW EVENTS:
COMMUNITY WORK DAY Every Thursday, 9.30am – dusk The busiest day of the week with everyone on site to get a diverse mix of big and small jobs done. Planning meeting to allocate jobs at 9.30am Come and learn some DIY, get involved in some building, fixing, tidying, growing, wood chopping. If you can’t make it for 9.30am don’t worry, we can always find you something to do later. Or arrive on Wednesday night if you want to begin the day with a cup of tea in bed!
GROWING GROUP Sundays, 2pm – dusk (come at 12 for lunch and a tour): All skills and ages welcome to join our organic veg beds where we use companion planting, seed saving, permaculture, annuals and perennials and crop rotation to work towards food autonomy and free ourselves from dependence on industrial agriculture. It is helpful is you call the site phone on 0789075156 to let us know your coming beforehand.
GROW HEATHROW DAILY Everyday, 10-6pm, (Sundays 2-6pm) Grow Heathrow relies on volunteer time, ideas and laughter to run. We are open every day, ready to put the kettle on. Please come along and plant some seeds, cook a wonderful meal or generally just help improve the Grow Heathrow site. We do yoga and meditation in the mornings in the straw bale in the mornings, meals by donations and have bonfires and music in the evenings.
Thursdays to Sundays each week are ‘hosted’, so these days are best if you’re just coming for a day. That means there will be someone available to give you a cup of tea, a tour and help find you a job (if you want one). If you are staying for longer it is also best to arrive on these days, so you can get an induction.
BIKE MECHANICS 3rd Weekend of the Month, Saturdays 12-4pm (20th Sep) Come and skill up on bike maintenance and repair! Please get in contact if you are interested in helping with/learning more about bike maintenance.
FORAGING FRIDAY 3rd Weekend of the Month, Fridays 1-3pm (19th Sep) Wild food workshops. From wild garlic sauerkraut to edible flower salads, hawthorn fruit chews to elderberry wine, learn to feed yourself for free while boosting local ecologies and biodiversity. In 2014, instead of lots of weekly sessions like last year, we’re organising bigger monthly foraging workshops, some especially for families. Give Sam or Rose a ring in advance on 07890751568 and we’ll wait for you before heading into the hedgerows.
