Capital growth grant

A little while ago we filled in a form applying for a capital growth grant.

Capital Growth is a scheme to support the start up of 2012 new growing spaces in London by 2012, something to do with the major and some of those politicians no doubt.

After a few phone chats and a visit from the delightful Eloise, a lovely pack containing various goodies and a cheque arrived… and I didn’t even hear or need to use the word ‘legacy’ once.

I love that they just put ‘farleigh road’ on the certificate… I kinda feel obliged to garden the whole street now!

Pretty soon we want to put grey-water recycling into action.

This will involve diverting waste water from the bathroom and kitchen into the garden and then filtering it using sand and reed beds before sending it into our pond and other places around the garden.

Laura has done some ace sketches which I thought we should share with you…
