Islington Gro-Mobile: Green charity seeks new milk float for ‘mobile potting shed’

The Islington Gro-Mobile project hit a snag this month after the milk float the charity had been intending to buy was removed from sale.
The fundraiser, part of the Urban Wild Places gardening project set up by a group of community centres in Islington, had hoped to turn the milk float into a mobile potting shed – but has now fixed its sights on a replacement.
More than £11,000 of the £15,000 target has already been raised, and Urban Wild Places has another three weeks to find the rest.
The funds will enable the charity to buy the milk float and fit it out as a roving garden classroom, so they can carry on delivering nature workshops to Islington’s parks, estates and community centres.
And what about a name for the new-found eco-friendly vehicle?

“We were thinking something bovine, like Daisy,” Sarah Kent, development officer for Wild Places, told the Gazette, “but we haven’t quite decided yet.
“It’s a very important decision and not one to be taken lightly.”
