Well-beeing / SEED Garden
The SEED project has now come to an end. Our garden is still open and will have workshops taking place during the summer. To stay up to date sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of this page.
Our well-beeing garden is in the grounds of the Kentish Town Health Centre and provides staff, patients and visitors with a space to relax and reflect. The plants selected in the design all have a health and wellbeing theme.
On Fridays from 1-3pm SEED members grow a kitchen garden, make prints and trade recipes while exploring stress and money. Starting from the gardens by growing our own food and produce, our weekly sessions provide the basis for developing self-sufficiency through creativity and the understanding of economic systems resulting in a cookbook: Revival Cooking. The cookbook will be developed together to feature easy recipes around economical, nutritional ingredients incorporating tricks for eating well together or alone based on heritage cooking, frugal living and small space kitchen gardening.
The SEED project is now running an open call for recipes to go into their Revival Cooking cookbook. Please click here for more information on how to contribute.
The aims and objectives of SEED are:
- To develop self-sufficiency
- To engage with the arts and gardening as a tool to improving mental and physical wellbeing and expanding gardening, financial and nutritional skills sets.
SEED project explores a gig-economy which doesn’t seek profit, but works for sustainability serving people and the environment. Seed’s methods on how to trade skills and devise no or low cost products champion the handmade by simple or found materials through the strength of a community.
SEED’s motto is interaction rather than transaction.
