Thanks for helping with Guerilla Gardening

leigham-court-streatham

Thanks to everyone who helped with the Guerilla Gardening last Saturday 22nd. We collected lots of rubbish, collected even more leaves and planted some daffodils ready for spring. Lambeth Council really ought to be doing this work, it’s quite scandalous they don’t even do basic stuff like litter picking

We also inspired two of our gardeners to write blogs about it. Andrea Gibbons wrote this piece for the Brixton Buzz. And John Mills wrote this piece for the British Society of Gerontology.

Watch this space for details of what happens next in the campaign

This is what our garden looked like "before Lambeth started messing with it" (Kate Macintosh, architect)

Our garden needs tidying up for winter. Lambeth are supposed to be doing it, but haven’t done a good job.

Volunteers for Lambeth Housing Activists will be coming on Saturday 22nd to help clear up our garden and show the council how public services should be run.

Garden Clean Up
Saturday 22nd November
10am – 1pm
Leigham Court Sheltered Housing, 269 Leigham Court Road

Everyone is welcome to join them. You don’t need gardening experience, you just need to care about public services.

You can download publicity here

(Note: This is an activist event. The aim of this event is to show what our garden could like if the council cared about the property rather than tried to demolish it. It is not to get volunteer labour to replace vital public services)
