Kitchen Garden, official launch event: June 8, 1pm
We are proud to announce the official launch party for the kitchen garden project takes place on June 8 at 1pm.
The special fund-raising event will feature a yummy cake bake sale, barbecue and special surprises. We’ll explain more about the project, give everyone a chance to get together, and hear from people who support our work.
We will officially name the garden the Yvonne Conolly Kitchen Garden, in recognition of her life’s work in education in Islington.
We hope the event will be a lot of fun and do hope you can join us there.
