Back To Earth Projects

A registered charity based on Broadwater Farm in Tottenham, North London. Back To Earth works for sustainable community regeneration and local community cohesion by reducing health inequalities; improving living standards and the environment for people living in Tottenham and Haringey. To achieve these ends we seek to: - empower local residents to make the best and most productive use of their surrounding land and community facilities. - enable people to learn new skills - or develop existing ones - through practical, accessible education and accredited training in land–based green skills and healthy fresh food growing and catering. - develop social enterprises like: the Farm Community Kitchen for healthy eating and cooking; local food growing in our community gardens - and a fresh Food Co-op - all locally run, using “local” food, employing local people and regenerating local estates, the community centre and Lordship Rec sustainably.
