Back to Front
Family Art Workshop – Thackray Medical Museum (Monday 4 April 11am – 1pm)
Create beautiful prints on cards or a canvas bag.
Some fruits and vegetables which we use regularly have such brilliant shapes – it would be a shame to just eat them!
Create a wild and crazy design or stay sophisticated and simple – it’s up to you!
If you only have a few minutes – why not contribute to our community activity by using a range of interesting composting materials to create a big, imaginative, weird and wonderful face on the floor!

The growers that attended made vertical growing towers from recycled materials. They also found out how to make a living wall to grow your strawberries and salads and looking at tackling issues of watering by making a self watering bottle tower.
Growers were given strawberries, raspberries and potatoes to take home along with peas, broad beans and salad leaves that were sown during the session.
Back to Front are at SHINE tomorrow from 10.30am – 12pm.
We have potatoes and various seeds to help get you started with growing at home.
Pop along and see us!
If you sign up to the project we can support your growing via our facebook page and visit your growing space if you become one of our active growers.
Spaces still available on the Back to Front workshop this Sunday 20 March, 1pm – 3pm at Thackray Medical Museum.

Grow early and recycle
Grow an interesting variety of chillis, tomatoes and salads to enhance your food and environment this summer.

We were extremely saddened to hear about the loss of Joe Maiden. Joe had been a great supporter of our project since the beginning and we were honoured to have him come and inspire us in the past and at the start of this growing season. He didn’t have to come and deliver this training but he did and shared not only his vast knowledge and experience, but also his passion and personal memories, drawing everyone into his world.
Many of our Harehills growers have plants grown by Joe in their gardens from this workshop. We like to think the passion of Joe will in this way spread from neighbour to neighbour. Joe’ front garden design for his kitchen garden won a gold award
We send our sympathies to Betty and family, as well as Tim and the team at Tim and Joe at BBC radio Leeds.
Thank you Joe, we will miss you but the memory of you and what you stood for will live on
