We couldn't have asked for better weather for the time of year (well, the time of this particularly wet year) - a positively warm and glowing sun shone upon us as we officially launched the 'Green Phoenix Urban Food Garden' (GPUFG) yesterday.
Wood chip strewn, log seating arranged and BBQ fired up made for an already visible transformation from car park to garden. Guests and visitors passed by in a steady flow throughout - many stopping to chill in the sun, take in the sounds of Leon playing bodhran and make the most of the fine fayre Paul was serving up on the barbie. Matt started building a permanent BBQ (with the help of his adorable litluns) - which I'm sure we'll put to very good use...
It was fantastic to see local residents, Phoenix members and Tower Hamlets Green Networkers enjoying the space and showing their interest and support. The kids playing and enjoying themselves completed what was a really fab day all round.
Our next job will be contacting all of you who signed up, in the next week, to arrange a meeting which will include electing the GPUFG Management Committee.
If you missed the launch, but are interested in becoming part of the project, please email us - we'll get back to you ASAP.
