Community Green

The Mayor Of London’s Get Moving programme encouraged fresh approaches to physical, mental and creative activity for older Londoners. Art in the Park’s Community Green gardening and food project, in partnership with Southwark Council and based in Burgess Park community garden, was one of only 16 projects in London to receive funding. Under the Community Green banner, and thanks to a small grant from Notting Hill Housing we ran Community Green – Intergenerational Summer Workshops throughout August, designing, decorating and planting containers for balconies and gardens with people of different ages from the local area.
