Working with the community
We are working closely with Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC) and Food4Families (F4F) to create a garden that is an area for reflection and quiet away from busy wards and departments but is also sustainable and functional.
RISC is a development education centre that aims to raise awareness of global/local issues and support action for social justice. It is a registered charity and limited company.
F4F is one of its key projects, launched to work with local communities to learn sustainable and healthy food growing skills. Since 2010 we have worked with many project partners to design and build over 30 community gardens, many within Reading’s most deprived neighbourhoods
