The Garden on the Hill – Saturday 28th November 2015

A new Community Garden

A new Community Garden
























A new Community Garden is being built at the very top of Brownhill Road.  It is called The Garden on the Hill and will be outside the Brownhill Road Baptist Church and Community Hall.  It is the only public frontage on Brownhill Road and has cars on the South Circular thundering by. Lewisham Gardens are working with the congregation and local community to redesign and plant up the huge stone beds which face on to Brownhill Road.

The first work day is on Saturday 28th November, where they will be removing everything from tired old shrubs. the soil and the old noticeboard.

Funded by the Catford South Assembly, Lewisham Gardens hopes lots of people will come and help!

Wildcat Wilderness – Rushy Green Time Bank

A natural wilderness on your doorstep

A natural wilderness on your doorstep

While on the phone to a colleague yesterday I learnt about a wonderful sounding project.  I promised her I would feature it on the blog, so here goes!

Wild Cat Wilderness is a community green space in Catford coordinated by the Rushey Green Time Bank. It is a natural wilderness on your doorstep, which you can help shape and get involved in. It is your community space where you can explore nature and the wildlife, play or relax in its peacefulness, learn new outdoor skills or crafts, share and enjoy the space with other local people of all ages, cultures, faiths and abilities.

How can I get involved?
There are many different ways you and your friends, neighbours and family can held develop this wonderful wild space.
We need people to help:

  • Clear rubbish
  • Make it safe
  • Make it inviting and attractive
  • Create paths
  • Make things
  • Decide stuff

You really don’t need any particular skills but you might learn something new or share with others what you are good at. Rushey Green Time Bank has a team of people on hand to help you and a project coordinator called Maria.
