Small Grants Fund 2019
The Community Kitchen Garden Clubs that have submitted successful applications to CKC provide a written report about how the grant has supported their project and benefitted their community gardens and the wider benefits made to the local community. Extracts from a selection of the reports received following successful applications include the following:
Henry Dickens Kitchen Garden Club
Henry Dickens Kitchen Garden Club used the grant to purchase materials to build a child proof fence around the wildlife pond area and spent the remainder on flowering plants for the garden, planted around the pond.
The work was completed in a couple of days in the spring and included a bolted gate for access which meant that the garden’s water areas are completely safe for toddlers and small children.
A quote from the Kitchen Garden Club:
‘Thank you for your generosity and for supporting our small North Kensington green oasis’
Olympia Kitchen Garden Club
Olympia Kitchen Garden held a community day which involved gardening and compost workshops and those who attended spent the day tidying up the community garden.
A quote from their report demonstrates the benefits to the local community
‘many new friendships formed – many bags of rubbish removed. A highly successful community day, which created a lasting, amazing atmosphere – thank you.’
