Event description
This event is all about us starting a conversation about how we can work together to "green" the community spaces in Milton Keynes.

About this Event

Our volunteers on the community garden project (Planting Up) have seen the environmental, social and health and wellbeing benefits that come from communities working together to "green" community spaces.

This year, our garden project has extended to the Daisychain Family Centre and we've also worked with GIV-MK,both of which have shown us the enormous benefits these gardens bring to children as well as adults.

With that, our project has a new aim...

We want to support the creation of a wildlife-friendly community garden (or area) in every estate in Milton Keynes, and we want to achieve each one in a way that:

(1) ensures that water is being captured and used sustainably, and

(2) that involves local residents, schools and businesses at its heart.

Having discovered a lot of groups and organisations that are interested in supporting this project, we're keen to get them together in a room to start the collective conversation. That, in a nutshell, is the purpose of this meeting/event.

For more background information, and to share your ideas for the event, please visit the "Let's Green MK" page on the Milton Keynes Water Community platform.

This meeting should be the first of many, so even if you're unable to make it this time, please register your interest along with any suggestions you have, in the Comments Area at the foot of the Water Community page linked above.

This meeting will finish around 6pm and be followed by another from 6.30pm - 7.30pm where we will be talking with Fishermead residents about making Fishermead Incredible by developing their own Incredible Edible community garden.

To reserve a place at the Fishermead community garden residents meeting, please book your place by registering here.

Look forward to seeing you at both events soon! :)
