The Delphis Eco Garden takes off

Delphis Eco have created an inspired community food garden in the disused spaces around the Delphis Eco offices with the help of Seed Pantry and Transition Town Wandsworth. With many acres of office garden space around the country they hope to raise awareness and lead the way for other companies to make their garden spaces more accessible, healthy and sustainable for those who work there.

To encourage people to grow more of their own food Delphis Eco have collaborated with Seed Pantry, Transition Town Wandsworth and Capital Growth (a London initiative by Mayor Boris Johnson) to come together and get the local community involved in developing an otherwise fruitless garden space into a vibrant healthy community food growing space where passers by can help their selves to produce.

Seed Pantry founder Neil Whitehead comments, “I’m very excited to be working with Delphis Eco and the local food growing initiatives, it’s great to see companies encouraging people to grow food in available spaces at home and at work. Our aim is to get everyone to have a go at growing your own food, even if you’re a novice and as people spend a great deal of time at work this is a perfect place to encourage this. With this collaboration we’re demonstrating the simple steps for businesses to provide healthy working environments and be more sustainable”.

Delphis Eco Managing Director Mark Jankovich said, “I read in a local newspaper that there was a huge waiting list for an allotment in the area. I knew I wanted fruit and vegetables grown in our little garden but this was certainly beyond my ability. I am delighted to have Transition Town Wandsworth (a community based organisation) on board as the green fingers of the project and Seed Pantry offers the perfect approach to growing food in urban environments and we’re really pleased to be working with them on this.”
