Eat Wood Green

"Eat Wood Green” is a community food growing and education space being installed in the heart of the high street in Haringey. The creation of a new community led growing space at Wood Green Library, will provide opportunities for local residents and visitors to gain green skills and engage with the healing power of horticulture. Our team is led by Black Rootz to provide a range of inclusive activities for the diverse communities that make up our local community.

A children and families garden will inspire and educate, encouraging the next generation to grow their own fruit and vegetable as healthy eating options. Additional spaces will explore themes of wellbeing, using wholistic activities to increase understanding of self-care, making healthy food choices, submersion in nature, mindfulness and creativity. Advocating intergenerational and cross-cultural exchanges, our gardens and classes will explore the tastes, textures and techniques used to grow an array of heritage crops.

The site will deliver green skills qualifications, and wellbeing workshops for visitors, schools, young people and families, as well as providing education and volunteering opportunities and activities for all sectors of the community.  This project is an extension of the extensive community work undertaken at the Wolves Lane Centre, N22 5JD where there are weekly volunteering opportunities, classes, workshops, an affordable café and produce shop.

The Eat Wood Green team is made up of a partnership between The Ubele Initiative CIC, Black Rootz, Haringey Council and is supported by the GLA High Streets for All fund.
