• The Green Works Brent and Lewisham

    In 2013 Toucan was successfully awarded funding over three years from Brent Council. The Project Brent Green Works is a combined horticultural, healthy eating and employment project.

    Toucan had successfully gained an allotment plot in Wembley through working in partnership with Brent Mind.

    This involves working with residents from the borough. We currently have 2 plots in the Wembley allotment site where we are currently growing herbs and vegetables. We also do small woodwork projects. like building a cold frame from reclaimed wood to constructing a trough from an old CD rack.

    All of the projects support users to gain experience in horticulture and develop skills that will enable them to venture into other employment.
