Wapping Women’s Centre

Last Wednesday I went to a gardening session at the Women’s Wapping Centre, where we shared out some precious seeds from Lutfun from Spitalfields City Farm. Some of the ladies showed me their garden plots. We’re going to document their growing as a group, and hopefully collect some seeds and stories from them for the seed library.

Siham from the Women’s Environmental Network explained a bit about companion planting and helped to distribute the seeds, which were valued like gold dust.
