In February we were awarded funding from the North Leamington Community Forum to continue running the Hanging Gardens of Lillington project.
For 2020 we were aiming to involve young people in growing and cooking as much produce as possible from the gardening spaces created around the youth centre.
Unfortunately shortly before the project was due to begin, the Youth Centre was closed along with all the schools. For a short time we did some online sessions, which involved dropping compost and seeds off to young people’s houses (many thanks to Emma!).

The youth workers ceased the online sessions after a few weeks in favour of concentrating on detached engagement with young people who were spending time out on the street and parks.
