Transition Crouch End
We work closely with green initiatives, taking part in film nights, attending meetings of the Sustainable Haringey Network, and having links with several community gardens. We aim to give meaning to sustainable projects within the area, and to emphasize their importance in creating a strong, resilient community.
- Using food as a vehicle to engage the public and empower them to adapt their lifestyle, both in terms of their living space and the choices they make as a consumer is a key element of a number of our projects
- Our main focus is food growing spaces – seeding initiatives in partnership with Hornsey Vale Community Centre, Stroud Green Library and Thornton’s Budgens.
- At our annual Apple Day you can taste freshly pressed juice, sample varieties of English apples, and attend talks, activities and cookery demonstrations using produce from the Hornsey Vale Community Centre Kitchen.
- Our Community Supported Agriculture Scheme with Church Farm Ardeley, near Stevenage,means deliveries of veg boxes, meat, eggs and milk to Crouch End. In return they have working days when volunteers can go to Ardeley to help.
- Engaging the public on green issues
- Promoting local and sustainable food and encouraging the reduction of food mileage thus reducing indirect carbon emissions into the borough
- Community involvement and education through promotion of local resources and skill share workshops
