At the double: Climate Action Seacroft recognised in Feed Leeds annual awards

Two projects initiated and run by Climate Action Seacroft have been nominated in awards run by Leeds's city-wide food-growing network.


Seacroft Forest Garden has been nominated for Best Food-Growing Project Supporting Sustainability & Resilience. It was set up in the summer of 2021, pioneered by Linda & John Otley on a disused piece of land owned by Leeds City Council Housing. Huge weeds were cleared, rubble moved and slowly the site is being transformed into a haven for local wildlife, biodiversity, and food growing. Watch a short YouTube video here:

Compost Collective Seacroft, supported by Zest, has been nominated for Best-Food Growing Project - Best Community Composting group. Run by local volunteer Gaynor Edwards, an experienced composter, it is supported by over 20 local residents who regularly bring their fruit and veg peelings to the collection station behind Ramshead Hill shops, enjoying a free cuppa from LS14 Trust Community Café in return.


Both projects have been made possible as part of the development of the Climate Action Leeds community hub in Seacroft.


Winners of these awards and others will be announced at a ceremony at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm on Monday 26th Feb.
