A housing association has announced two pop-up events to encourage residents to cultivate unused land.

Affinity Sutton in Borehamwood has set up a Cultiv8 scheme with its partner Food Up Front open to give gardeners or complete beginners the chance to grow herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables near their homes.

Neighbourhood Investment Manager at Affinity Sutton, Judie Obeya, said: “Our Cultiv8 programme seeks to support local food growing, volunteering, recycling and improving green spaces to help residents wanting to improve their neighbourhoods and bring the community together.

“Many of our residents have outdoor spaces and gardens which they’re unsure of what to do with. What better way to utilise them than growing your own produce.”

Food Up Front is based in Hampshire and was founded in 2007 to encourage sustainable food growing in urban areas.

Seb Mayfield who co-ordinates Food Up Front, said: “Drop by your nearest session to find out more about Cultiv8 and collect a free take home growing pack, pick up some tips and share your ideas.

"If you already grow and are willing to share your skills with others we’d also love to hear from you.”

The first event will be at the Three Ways Community Centre in Arundel Drive from 11am to 2pm.

The second one will be at the Number 10 Leeming Road on February 28.
