Sign Petition – Save Wolves Lane – Only 11 days left!

IMG_0977Please sign the petition to save Wolves Lane Garden Centre today!

We need as many signatures as possible to prove our support.

The good news is that we have now received enough signatures to be allowed to present directly to Haringey Counsillors at a Council meeting! But in order to make the strongest case, we still need to show as much community support as possible.

If you haven’t already signed, please sign today. Please also ask your friends, neighbours and colleagues who live in Haringey to sign also.

Your centre is at risk and threatened by Council budget cuts. We need to act now to save this valuable resource. Once your garden centre is lost, we cannot get it back.

We, the undersigned, petition the council:

We strongly support the Activities at the Wolves Lane Garden Centre at Wolves Lane N22 5JD and oppose any attempt to close it or move its functions elsewhere.

  1. The Centre is unique – a 3.5 acre site run by the London Borough of Haringey that features a Palm House, desert garden and rainforest.
  2. These features cannot be relocated or replaced. This resource would be permanently lost.
  3. The Palm House is the only one of its kind in North London.
  4. The Centre offers excellent opportunities for:
    • training and volunteering in gardening for:
      • those with physical and/or learning difficulties,
      • work experience for local schools and
      • the unemployed
    • education: environmental education for 2,500 local school children a year & family learning in English as a second language
    • growing: plants and vegetables for the public and council’s parks and flower beds
    • services and activities: a variety for the local community

Please sign the petition to save Wolves Lane Garden Centre today!

You must live, work or study in Haringey in order to sign this petition.
