Gardens of Refuge from Refuse

Our lovely friends – Transition Town Tooting and their lovely friends - CARAS (Community Action for Refugees and Asylum seekers) have had a great success with their ‘Gardens of Refuge’. The project is funded by Aviva (funding achieved through a public vote) with the objective of connecting gardening, creativity and the communities of refugees and asylum seekers. Part of the project was to create a mural as decoration for the water catchment shelter in the Transition Town Tooting community garden on North Drive in Tooting, near the Lido. A gorgeous mural has been created; we suggest a visit. What a wonderful achievement with materials sourced from our very own Scrapstore including: foam boa
