We’re proud to say that our project is now supported by funding from Milton Keynes Community Foundation (MKCF). Thank you to MKCF and all our supporters for getting us this far. The mini grant we’ve been awarded will give us the help we need to get get planting up to cultivate something special for MK.
Our next planning meeting will take place on Thursday 17th May from 7 – 8pm, and will be followed by our weekend Permablitz (with “Bring & Share” lunch) on Sunday 20th May from 11am – 1pm.
