About Organisation

My Yard is a Registered Charity supporting community togetherness in Harrow, Bushey & Barnet. We listen and help one another, reduce food waste, find solutions, value each other, and celebrate! And together, we feel empowered to make positive changes for ourselves and the planet.

We do this through community outreach and relationship building. Often this may be creating a safe space for a community to come together to eat and socialise. Then we work alongside young people and their families to design packages and services that can be enjoyed by them and their peers - and that they can be supported and empowered to lead long-term.

Strong socio-economics

Like many areas around the UK, the Harrow community has people from starkly different socio-economic backgrounds. From gentrification and famed private school to families living in temporary accommodations who cannot work, living on low incomes, and struggling to feed their families. It is unsettling that we are in the 2020s, inside the sixth-biggest global economy, yet the UK has more than 8% of its population living in food poverty. The My Yard community is finding solutions to poverty and generating empowering change.

The My Yard’s inclusive community runs youth groups, social events, gardening clubs, and surplus food delivery services for those most in need.
