13 June Purfleet-on-Thames ‘Grow Your Own’
Purfleet-on-Thames: Grow Your Own
Sun 13th June 10am – 4pm
Starts: RSPB Rainham Marshes
Ends: High House Production Park
This walk is split into two parts, both meet at RSPB Rainham Marshes. Please book on BOTH walks on Eventbrite if you wish to stay with us all day.
The first part of this walk explores the award winning bird sanctuary at RSPB, built on ancient marshland and once used as a firing range it offers spectacular views of Purfleet-on -Thames and is the perfect place for us to reflect on our dreams for a more sustainable community. Living London’s Director Saira Niazi will join us to lead the conversation.
For the second part of the walk we will be joined by Inspiral London walkers. We will pause at the Beacon for a ‘welcome to Purfleet-on-Thames’ talk with a brief history of the area, and a visit to Heavenly Greens Fruit & Veg based at St Stephen’s Church, before continuing to High House Production Park.
At High House Production Park members of the Purfleet-on-Thames community will share their journeys and local connections, bringing food, recipes and music. Together, we will capture our dream for a sustainable community by creating a recipe for Purfleet-on-Thames.
Please bring your own picnic to enjoy during the recipe talks by local volunteers.
With contributions from Heavenly Greens Fruit & Veg, The Backstage Centre, South Essex College, the High House Community Group and other local groups and in partnership with developers PCRL (Purfleet Centre Regeneration Limited), walkers are invited to this celebratory event on the theme of sustainable communities.
