The Jaddaf Community Garden was launched during the first edition of Down to Earth on December 12, 2020. The participatory project is in collaboration with a group of residents known as the Friends of Jaddaf Community Garden, aiming to connect with neighbours and create a more profound sense of shared responsibility for the environment. The Garden is an opportunity to meet residents and collectively learn about, care for, and grow various plants, including fruits, vegetables and herbs. Besides caring for the Garden, participants will gather to discuss the importance of gardening and the food we eat and explore sustainable practices together.
This Summer, The Friends of Jaddaf Community Garden and Dr Nasser Rego, founder of SoWeGrow and Zoë: farm for life, bring an inspirational programme for all gardening enthusiasts. In collaboration with Art Jameel, ‘My Winter Garden’ is a twelve-week workshop designed for all to learn firsthand how to grow organic vegetables as experts do. Find the complete programme here.
Registration for this event is now full. Email Dr Nasser Rego at [email protected] for more information on future events and how you can get involved.
The Jaddaf Community Garden will be back in November and just in time for Down to Earth 2022. From planting and harvesting days to volunteering opportunities and family workshops. The Friends of Jaddaf Community Garden programme is free to join.
