BESTcic is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (9577075) that is run for the benefit of Barnet residents and wider community.  Our volunteers are the back bone and foundation of Barnet Environment Support Team & strive for nothing but the BEST! Share your skills and Join the team today.

In response to Covid-19, BEST, our volunteers and community at large have proposed to propagate and distribute their home grown seedlings, saved seeds, cuttings and whatever excess gardening products  to those who can grow in pots or gardens. Please save your seeds for the next growing season and give some to your neighbour .

We will provide FREE  seedlings, seeds, fruit cuttings and accompanying growing medium plus online support to those who can adopt the seedlings with the aim of saving some seeds for our community seedbank. Let's work towards being SELF-SUFFICIENT!

Home-Grown Organics (HGO)

The youth will play a crucial role in the initial phase by providing (through selling) a regular supply of home grown seedlings to other residents and the community through the project, Home Grown Organics (HGO). Local residents will drive this campaign through friendly  competitions, social events and campaigns on organic farming and environmental issues to encourage knowledge exchange and community engagement.  BEST will provide support through resources and information to our members.

Container Gardening For Food Security 2020

 

If you have a garden or space to grow your own food in pots then consider yourself lucky and make the most of it now!! There's no better time than now to start sowing seeds, planting crops, transplanting, and preparing your planting schedule for the spring - Winter.  Food shortage is inevitable in the coming months, so please grow and save your seeds.

Volunteers / gardeners will be recruited and trained at the community garden through the Permaculture Allotment Project (PermAllotment) - Community Supported Agriculture.  After completing the training, the coordinators will train other volunteers at our weekly activity sessions.

Each group will be supplied with seeds / seedlings, ongoing support & training, shared tools / resources throughout their growing cycle, which will be free for all registered members.
