Attended a good meeting of the Nursery Farm Residents Association today . A well-run, positive and engaging meeting focussing on the needs and aspirations of a social housing location in Ashby. Definitely a strong sense of purpose and community and a desire to engage with the things that make anywhere a pleasant place to be. One lady commented that her 15 year old son had turned half of her garden to vegetable patches and was growing a variety of produce: that is just fantastic. Given our youth a project like that has got to be a step in the right direction. Yes there might be some associated vandalism, but if we mitigate that risk and prepare for the eventuality, we can deal with it and move on.
More please NFRA!
