Join us in the garden on 18 June

We're delighted to say that we've been awarded a Wellbeing Grant from St George Neighbourhood Partnership. As part of the project we're running a programme of free community events to encourage local residents to get gardening.

The first event is a Working Party as part of Big Green Week on Saturday 18 June from 2.30 to 4.30pm. There are lots of jobs to get involved in, including clearing weeds, painting the fence plus plenty of planting to get us ready for St George in Bloom.

We will provide tools and gloves, plus plenty of tea and cake for the gardeners. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. Look forward to seeing you there!

Out in the Garden

We're delighted to welcome Liz Clough to the team at St George Community Centre. Liz has a wealth of experience in gardening and is currently studying with RHS. She's also got a great background in community events.

We'll have some events coming up later in the summer for you to really get your hands dirty, and help us breathe new life into this slightly neglected corner of St George.

We've also started a crowdfunder campaign. All donations are really gratefully received, please click here to donate. All money raised will help us pay for tools and plants.

We're also on the look-out for any tools that you might have lurking at the back of a shed. If you don't use them any more, please get in touch and we will put them to very good use.

Look forward to seeing you out in the garden soon!
