We have opened the gates to the local community and so far we have had full support from the neighbours and those in the nearby communities, as well as the local businesses and some unofficial support from certain local councillors. So far we have received a load of donations, including plants, wood, tents and building materials, but we are always in need of more things. Please check our wish list in the discussion page of our facebook group!
Our gates are open everyday as we are essentially a community garden. We encourage everyone from the local area to pay us a visit and share their ideas about what we should do with the land, as well as getting them to help us plant our vegetables and also just to chill out and get to know us all.
We will hold a public meeting every Thursday night at 7pm on site, and we shall try to make every Saturday an event filled open day.
Needless to say, we still welcome everybody from all over London and the world. We have had quite a few international visitors lately! Everyone is welcome to come and stay as long as they follow site rules which include no drugs and alcohol, as well as being considerate to others and you must actively participate as a member of the community.
We especially welcome anyone with any skills or knowledge which may be useful or interesting. We encourage people to hold workshops to share their skills, whether it is about common law, herbal remedies, yoga, or even how to make didgeridoos or repair bicycles! Or even if you know nothing but just want to learn, come along too!
We are in the process of setting up a proper website where we can publish our wish list, pod casts, and an event diary for all the workshops we will be holding.
Until then, please follow us on twitter! http://twitter.com/KewEcoVillage
