We've signed the lease, we've got the keys and plans are progressing well, I can not begin to thank everyone for their continued support.
As we move on to our next exciting stage we have added some items to our wish list. Often, it is not only the financial donations that makes a difference but the gift of a tangible item that can have a huge impact on our organisation. Our hope is that people in the community who see this list might be able to help meet these needs in some way or know someone who can.
Do you have a stash of ribbons and string that you no longer have a use for? Would you like to see them put to good use? If so, we would absolutely love to take them off your hands.
Are you having a shed clear out and have some gardening tools you no longer need? We would love to take them off your hands and we will certainly put them to good use in the cutting garden.
Flower bombing began as a random act to leave mystery bouquets of flowers on benches in and around Barnet & Haringey specifically to brighten up people's days
Have you a bank of flower seeds you would like to share? Part of our work with young offenders involves planting and bringing on plants to add to our stock at the cutting garden

You never know what we will have in stock. Planted hanging baskets, acers, tomato plants, pots, containers and so much more. Why not pop in and see what we have, as you never know, it could just be what you are looking for.
We are always looking to increase our stock of craft paper for our classes. So do remember us if you are having a clear out as we will be happy to take recycle your papers
We could really use a potting shed to help with cultivation and germination of our seeds. If you are getting rid of a shed, in good condition, we would absolutely love to have it and put it to good use.
The great news is that we are collecting more and more flowers and plants but the bad news is our small car is simply not big enough.
So if there is a sponsor out there that would support us with a van we would love to hear from you
Every day we are humbled and thankful for the support we receive.
I am very grateful to Ursula for providing us with her very imaginative and unique creations every week. Friend in Need Community Centre is a charity which provides services to elderly people in the East Barnet area and this Easter week Ursula managed to treat all our members with a bunch of daffodils which made them so happy."
