Winterbourne House and Garden has an ongoing commitment to contribute to, and work with, our local communities and in 2011 we ran a community based project in conjunction with the charitable organisation, Botanic Gardens Conservation International, with funding from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. http://urbanvegwhg.wordpress.com/

This is a Summary of the full report (available at www.londonsdc.org/), commissioned by the London Sustainable Development Commission to explore how children in London can be reconnected with nature, and the benefits that may be experienced as a result. The report focuses on children under the age of 12 and on nature that has the potential to be experienced as part of children’s everyday lives (rather than in one-off residential trips or adventure activities).

Read the ideas, information and case studies about Food, Drink and Catering from NAEE's handbook 'Positive Action'.
A great new book by the Geography Collective and City Farmers.
