If not you, then who?… LAST DAY to sign Petition – Save Wolves Lane!

baskets_28MAY15Please 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! Thank you to all who signed. 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

MP Catherine West visits Wolves Lane!

C West WLGC Cockroach

Catherine West, our Labour Member of Parliament for Hornsey & Wood Green, visited Wolves Lane Garden Centre on November 12th. She met with adult learners…who introduced her to an exotic species of cockroach!

These are a special type of “hissing” cockroach and are kept in an eco-tank habitat in the Learning Centre classroom at Wolves Lane. Cockroaches are quite interesting when you get to know them! They play an important part in the environment.

 

 

 

Featured Animal Friend at Wolves Lane: our Lionhead Rabbit

Bunny_Mandy

A message from”Piggy”, our white lion-head rabbit:

Hello, I’m a white rescue rabbit called Piggy – I’m called Piggy because I have a smudge on my nose that makes me look like a piglet! I’m very happy in my new home at Wolves Lane Garden Centre.

My best friends are the ‘Gwinns’ – two white guinea pigs that I met when I came here. We share a big hutch in the barn which keeps us safe from foxes and warm at night and in the day we go outside to eat lots of grass.

Rabbits are supposed to eat a range of food including hard food that helps to wear down their teeth that never stop growing. I am not that keen on hard food so my teeth did keep on growing and this made it very uncomfortable for me to eat so the Vet removed my front teeth and now I can eat all the soft food that I like.

We love to have visitors and hope that you will come visit us soon at Wolves Lane Garden Centre!

We’re at the back – just walk through the greenhouse by reception, out the back and we are near the chicken coop and the barn. There are signs to show the way.

Or just ask Reception to point you in the right direction!
