Multicultural Gardening Club

The Multicultural Gardening Club ran on Sundays until 2018 to encourage integration and understanding between communities. The aims were:

  • To teach participants how to garden in our local climate
  • To plant fruits and vegetables for harvest
  • To give participants an opportunity to develop their English language skills
  • To help participants learn more about a healthy lifestyle and healthy eating
  • To promote integration and understanding between communities.

The initial creation of the Multicultural Gardening Club was made possible by the generous support of Reading Borough Council, which funded a pilot scheme in July 2014, and then received funding from Berkshire Community Foundation, and a donation of boots and aprons from the University of Reading.
