Community Use – Make a Proposal!

 

We are still receiving suggestions for community uses we all would like to see at Wolves Lane. Please write with your ideas, suggestion, proposals for the future!

What activities would you like to see at Wolves Lane?

  1. Would you like to organise and lead a community activity at Wolves Lane?
  2. The community activities below have already been proposed – which ones interest you?

OrganicLea’s Vision for Wolves Lane: An initiative that grows and distributes sustainably produced food to local residents and businesses; engages a wide range of people in learning and skills activities, and health and well-being benefits; establishes itself as a centre for promoting healthy eating; and offers space for community groups and social enterprises to run activities that benefit the community.

Activities Proposed

  • Outdoor Gardening Club to encourage outdoor growing, including foraging and exploration of heritage vegetables
  • Kitchen Gardeners – indoor gardening club to encourage balcony and kitchen gardens
  • Ideas and Innovation Day: “How to Upcycle and Recycle”-  a day for people to put forward their ideas, exchange and barter.
  • Play area – indoor or outdoor. After trying to get small children to walk around the venue, it would be good to have an area where they can let off a bit of steam. The good thing about indoor play areas is that you can make a small charge for them, ie at the Wyevale Garden Centre in Enfield (I appreciate this is a chain).
  • Worksheets of things to spot at the garden centre (i.e. five animals, five red things for younger children; an arachnid, an evergreen for older children)
  • Cafe with great coffee and healthy recipes
  • Homework clubs
  • Toy exchange
  • Book exchange
  • Book Club
  • Writers Circle
  • Wildlife exploration
  • Bird Watching Club
  • Fish Club
  • “I remember Haringey” – a collective memoir writing group to document residents’ memories in Haringey
  • Yoga
  • Walking Club
  • Photography
  • Art Classes
  • “Learn how to make simple repairs to household goods” surgery
  • Local History Events
  • Public Speaking Club
  • Wine Tastings
  • Environmental education programme for people of all ages
  • Secondary schools gardening programme for young adults from 16 to 24 years of age
  • Self-led school groups ‘hiring’ areas of the glasshouses to grow flowers and vegetables which can either be cooked in their own school kitchens or used in the café
  • Family Learning education programme
  • volunteering programme, aimed at people with learning disabilities, to provide them with gardening opportunities and education to create their own successful garden spaces or enjoy working with others
  • Local farmers market at weekends – for example Myddleton Road market (myddletonroadmarket.co.uk)
