We were made up that Taking Root in Bootle was selected by the judging panel as a finalist for the Impact Award – Environmental Sustainability at the LCR Culture and Creativity Awards 2021.
We were nominated for our Community Growing Circle project which we loved, bringing front yard farming to the streets of Bootle.
There was more sharing of the Taking Root story when we joined Compost Works to deliver a session as part of the Liverpool Food Growers Network’s ‘Rethinking Our Food Systems’ programme at the Open Eye Gallery’s LOOK Climate Lab to tell everybody more about our Growing Circle project.
Last year we were left with a waiting list, as so many residents wanted to join the community composting and front yard mini farming project, so we are really pleased that we have been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund’s Together for Our Planet programme to launch our third Growing Circle in Linacre Ward. We will soon be inviting 40 more households to join us.
