Pocket Park and ‘Seed To Feed’ Projects Launch
Wed 20 July 2016 at 1.00 pm at the Pocket Park, Rear of Kingston Youth Centre Centre, 48A Beverley Road , Hull, HU3 1YE
City Farm Hull, a community venture formed by Recycling Unlimited supported by HANA (Humber All Nations Alliance) and HEY Mind, was recently awarded a Government grant of £11,735 to develop a ‘Pocket Park’ at its site on Beverley Road in Hull and this is now nearing completion.
This was added to by a generous grant of £4,960 from NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group for a project called ‘Seed to Feed’ and both projects are formally opening on Wednesday 20th July
They will be celebrating the grand opening with performances from a variety of different cultures including singing and dancing and having a barbecue, all free.
A ‘Pocket Park’ is a small oasis of grass, sweet smelling plants and pleasant scenery in the midst of an urban area, a real haven of calm resting in the hustle and bustle of city life. Nestled to the rear of the Kingston Youth Centre and just off the busy Beverley Road, the aim of the ‘Pocket Park’ is to provide some peace and tranquility to a world that at times can seem to be nothing but stress.
Centrally located to be easily accessible for those people who live or work within the city centre, the Pocket Park will be a perfect place for workers to come on their lunch break and relax before tackling a busy afternoon.
‘Seed To Feed’ Free Planters
As well as the Pocket Park opening, residents of Hull are also invited to come along and claim a free planter, along with suggestions and guidance on how to grow fruit and vegetables themselves from our resident gardener Frank.
For many people living with no garden, learning how to grow their own food in planters is a great way of healthy eating and saving money too. And it is completely free. This scheme will run on through to November 2016.
