Roma Women Grow: Beginnings

Europia has received a grant from the Lankelly Chase Foundation from the Manchester Spaces programme. This money has allowed Europia to establish the  Roma Women Grow project and start it remotely from the beginning of April. Our Roma Advocate, Ramona, consulted the Roma women she worked with before, who told us that a horticultural project would be welcome as growing plants can be done at home and it is possible to do during the lockdown. The women that we are in touch with are proud householders and cooks. It was suggested that we grow lovage, a cooking herb that is not widely available in the UK, but very popular in the Romanian cuisine – where our participants are from. We have ordered growing kits:propagators, seeds and compost…. . and were very happy when they arrived at our office!
