New gardening and ecological project in Notting Hill
The Filipino Chaplaincy of the Diocese of London joined forces with the Persian Anglican Community of London and St John’s Notting Hill to establish a new gardening and ecological project. The project is a direct response to the pandemic and a greater realisation of our dependence on creation.
F.A.I.T.H (Food Available In The House) is the name given to the project, which is establishing a wildflower meadow, together with planters growing herbs and vegetables- teaching people (especially children) how to grow food. The project was opened on Saturday 3rd October by the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Councillor Gerard Hargreaves and the Consul General of the Philippines, Arlene Gonzales-Macaisa.
The Vicar of St John’s Notting Hill, Dr William Taylor said
“I am delighted at this partnership with our two BAME communities as we develop our connections with the natural environment. The next stage will be the introduction of bees, as we create our urban paradise”
