Well...we're on the last leg in our preparations for our Plant Sale and Healthy Living Community Day, which takes place on Saturday 2nd June 2018, from 10am to 4pm in the Share Garden, within the grounds of Springfield University Hospital in Tooting.
We've got a great day planned and very much hope that everyone in our lovely community will be able to join us to celebrate the launch of Share Nurseries, our gardening social enterprise, which provides key employability skills and opportunities for our students while providing quality plants, produce and garden creations for the local community.
At the event on 2 June, we'll have lots of plants for sale, free exercise workshops, cycling and healthy living information stalls to get you thinking about eating well and exercising more. Plus our pop-up café will be serving refreshments and street food. We are delighted that our local MP for Battersea and Shadow Minister for Disabled People, Marsha de Cordova, and the Deputy Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Jane Cooper, will also be joining in with the celebrations.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the continued support of the Tooting Business Network who have supported us for many years. We can't thank everyone enough, especially the proprietors of Little India, Gurkhas Diner, Tooting Pharmacy Practice, Minar Jewellers, Patel Bros and Basil.
We've been gardening in Tooting for over 20 years, delivering horticulture training for our students, and developing our beautiful gem of a garden. It's been Tooting's best kept secret for far too long but we think it's time to share it – come and visit one of London's great garden communities.
