Craig Taylor-Green from @fromHUDwithMUD on Facebook applied to Dalton Together to fund his idea ‘The Radish Race 2021’. Here is what he had to say about his experience of applying for funding and why he wanted set up this community project.
“In response to the most recent lockdown announcement, I wanted to do something to help the community to remain positive, hopeful and connected.
As I’m currently on a food growing journey with my community purposed back garden project, it seemed natural to centre the idea around the incredible joy that comes from growing something.
With Dalton Together’s encouragement and financial support, the idea turned into reality and Radish Race 2021 was born which basically involves growing radish using a provided grow kit and completing a radish themed activity pack.
Dalton Together is there to support all members of the ward and the processes in place seem to be person focused, minimizing barriers and providing people with a sense of hope that they are not alone.
Radish Race 2021 is almost two weeks in and the engagement so far has been amazing. Hopefully these photos tell a story.”
