HCA Oasis Project

 

Our garden at Millman Street is lovingly tended by our members and volunteers. We have recently been awarded a small grant from the Olswang Green Seed Fund to make our garden into an urban oasis. We have employed a coordinator for 2 hours a week to develop the space and deliver workshops for our members and other local people. The aim is to encourage wildlife through planting native species and to encourage local people to get green!
