Too cool for cucumbers: whats growing in Hackney

The last couple of months have been busy on our sites in Clissold and Springfield Parks and Allen’s Gardens. Our interns Warami and Larissa and new Kickstart employee, Kaya, have been working hard sowing seeds, harvesting our winter crops, and planting out our new spring crops. They have been working alongside our volunteers, who have been booking in for morning or afternoon slots at the sites. We're all quite fed up with the cold weather.  For the plants however, it has had its benefits and downsides.
