Community garden given RHS recognition
4:00pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
A COMMUNITY garden scheme in Crewe has been nominated for a Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) award.
The Sherborne Urban Community Project is in the running for the ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ award, part of a wider Britain in Bloom campaign.
The Sherborne Urban Community Project aims to give neighbours the opportunity, knowledge and practical skills they need to grow their own produce.
"The project is run by Greenspaces South Cheshire CIC, supported by Wulvern, who manage the homes in the neighbourhood, and is based at the community bungalow in the heart of the estate.
James Thompson, executive director at Greenspaces, said: “To be recognised by the RHS is a fantastic achievement.
“We are helping to make growing your own accessible to all, reaching out to share the many benefits of gardening, including fresh local food, better health and wellbeing, beautiful productive wildlife-friendly environments and stronger communities.”
