A ground-breaking tenant-run estate is helping homeless people put down roots by awarding them the gardening contract for their grounds.
The D’Eynsford Tenant Management Organisation, which recently took over the running of the Camberwell estate, celebrated the new partnership with homeless charity St Mungo’s Broadway, at a launch event on Monday.
The Putting Down Roots gardening project for people who have been affected by homelessness will now employ two people to tend the estate’s grounds.
Darren Kidson, of D’Eynsford TMO, said: “We are delighted to have awarded our grounds maintenance contract to Putting Down Roots (PDR).
“Our residents, volunteers and staff are looking forward to working with PDR to make a real difference to the estate and work together to make it an even better place to live.”
