" I have complicated health issues and it's a way to pay back everyone who's helped me at the Caversham. I have a garden at home but I live on my own. I want to share my gardening knowledge with other people. "

 about 

WHAT IS THE LISTENING SPACE?

This is a garden in the central courtyard of the Caversham Group Practice.

Open 2-3pm every Thursday, it's a free drop in for anybody who'd like to take part in communal gardening activities. We grow flowers and plants but also lots of vegetables and some fruit.

WHO IS INVOLVED?

We are a group of NHS health professionals working in collaboration with Transition Kentish Town, local artists as well as other volunteers from our patient group.

WHO'S IT FOR ?

You! Anyone of any age from childhood to elderly.

HOW DO I ACCESS IT ?

This is a garden in the central courtyard of the Caversham Group Practice.

I CAN'T GARDEN, CAN I COME ?

No skills are necessary, except a positive attitude. You can help by planting seeds, or watering, or weeding. Or you can just sit and relax. You can make conversation, you can be totally quiet, you  could even come and read a book.

WHAT'S IT FOR ?

It's to provide a participatory place that's about being in the present tense. It's not about your past, it's not about your future. It's about now.  A refuge, a haven from the stresses of today's world.

DO I HAVE TO COME EVERY WEEK ?

There's no obligation. You can come as much or as little as you'd like.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FLOWERS AND FOOD FROM THE GARDEN ?

At the moment any food is given to the staff of the Caversham and shared with our gardeners.

        HOW IS IT FUNDED ?

From voluntary donations - whether it's cash, gardening tools and equipment, or people's time.

DO I HAVE TO BE A PATIENT AT THE CAVERSHAM PRACTICE ?

Currently yes for the gardening group on a Thursday but all are welcome to the community events.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST ?

It's totally free. We're looking forward to seeing you.
