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.
Those involved on the project benefit from taking part in activities that support individual health and well being as well as learning and sharing new skills whilst making a positive contribution to the local community.
