      “Cutting food waste is a delicious way of saving money, helping to feed the world and protect the planet” Tristram Stuart

      Our latest project, the Community Fridge, is full of food that is just before, on or just past its best before date, that can be repurposed towards eradicating food poverty and waste. Surplus food is shared within the local community. Ours is part of the Hubbub Community Fridge Network.  So far 32 Community Fridges have been set up across the UK, helping thousands connect to their communities, whilst accessing nutritious food and reducing waste.

      The fridge is open to anyone to take whatever they would like.  Nothing has a price, people can pay what they want for any item or nothing at all. We’d like to think that those that are living in food poverty will have their items for free and everyone else will pay a reasonable amount within their budget, which will help fundraise for solar panels to power a 2nd fridge and freezer.  So far, we’ve had a few people that have kindly, clearly paid more than the value of the produce.

      Food donations are welcome: Items include bread, pastries, dips, hard cheeses, fresh fruit and vegetables – anything that is safe to eat and meets food hygiene standards. A list is available on request.

      Church Lane Community Garden is open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm, also Wednesdays, 11am-4pm. It’s on Harold Road, just past the children’s playground and the footbridge over the Central line. Come along to see what’s growing, admire our locally built pizza oven, solar dryer, apple press and amazing water butts.

We hold regular Saturday workshops and events over the year.

      A few examples: mushroom growing, apple juicing, compost making, pruning, building a cold frame. Experienced or not, we welcome new people.

      Perhaps you’d like to volunteer? That would be fantastic, as our hard-working community garden team could always do with more help.

      The stall has been going since July 2011; it’s a partnership between Transition Leytonstone and local food growing cooperative OrganicLea. Definitely the best place in Leytonstone for seasonal organic and local fresh produce, it’s open every Saturday from 10am-3pm, sometimes a little bit later – if you’re lucky.Saturday Stall-a_31.10.15 The stall also features eggs from ex-battery rescued hens (very happy layers now), super organic veggie samosas (the best I’ve ever eaten), jams, chutneys, fruit juices and amazing locally baked bread – one slice will definitely satisfy you for a while! Also not to be missed: OrganicLea’s unusual mixed salad bags – the contents vary throughout the year, with brightly coloured edible flowers a summer trademark.

      Transition Leytonstone also provides stall volunteers, who enjoy a 20% discount on all produce. If you’re interested in regular or occasional volunteering, find out more from RoseMary, our volunteer coordinator.
