An allotment-based community garden project for Barnet residents / volunteers.
The ‘Barnet Community Garden Centre’ Project has sought to widen community participation in conservation and permaculture by researching and developing environmental activities for students and volunteers in Barnet. Barnet Environment Support Team (BEST) will oversee the implementation and management of the project. A volunteer training and participation model has been established that can be delivered by students / volunteers and easily transferred to other community gardens and green spaces.
It is envisaged that the ‘Barnet Community Garden Centre’ Volunteer Development Programme will become self-sustaining and be operated by trained volunteers over the long term.
