These pictures are from Courgette in the City’s first free Christmas Day event held at Lark Lane Community Centre. The event was held for local people who would otherwise have been spending Christmas Day alone. We had about forty people in total attending, including volunteers who helped out (thank you!), and we all sat down to eat together. David Knopov sang brilliantly for us, we had carol singers and Father Christmas dropped in too!
Courgette In The City is a Liverpool south enterprise founded by Rachel Rogers. We promote inclusion and participation within schools, alternative education providers, nurseries and anyone else that is interested in using gardening to develop social cohesion within their organization and community.
With an emphasis on ‘Grow Your Own’ and healthy living we promote sustainability whilst teaching lifelong skills. We can create a growing area in your outdoor space, however limited, or work with you in an existing garden.
For more information about the project, please visit the Courgette in the City website or telephone (0151) 727 3586 and ask for Rachel.
