Hello there! Will you be coming to the the Lordship Rec Community Festival on Saturday, 12th September?? Back 2 Earth have comandeered a whole section of the festival which will be centred around our annual Tottenham Flower and Produce Show. This is an opportunity for all of Haringey’s green-fingered gardeners, allotment owners and back-garden wonder workers to get involved and show how abundant this borough is for growing fresh produce. There are so many categories which people can enter, not just fruit and vegetables…

So if you didn’t know about our marquee then please have a look through the leaflets attached to this e-mail. And even if you don’t enter (even with categories for best weed, flower arranging, minature gardens, jam making etc), we’d love you to come along on the day, to see some beautiful flowers and produce. And join in with the general community atmosphere. There is a lot going on, literally, fun for all the family.

We hope to see you there

regards

Felix Waterhouse
Volunteer and Trainee Co-ordinator, Back 2 Earth – Broadwater Farm Community Centre
