Suffolk Park Community Gardens was breifly out of lockdown last week, and the gardeners couldn’t wait to get back in the garden.
The team of young, old, and differently-abled, worked together to install their new compost /worm farm – generously donated by Subpod, a local sustainability business.
The worms come from the innovative local eco-company, WastePlant.
A not-for-profit community group
Holly English from the gardens said, ‘We are a not-for-profit community group who rely on the kind donations of our local businesses and friends. So we are super stoked and grateful to receive such a wonderful gift from these local trailblazer companies, who are doing really great things for the planet’.
‘We have big visions for our humble gardens. A small but strong, dedicated team have created this little Garden of Eden.
‘We would love to see some of our bigger dreams come to realisation, such as wheelchair access throughout the gardens, picnic spaces and a garden shed with a door that locks!
‘Gardens bring so much happiness and peace of mind to people from all walks of life, especially during these times of great uncertainty and social division.
Localisation and community
‘This is a place where we come together on equal ground. Our love of nature, gardens, localisation and community.
‘The Suffolk Park Community Gardens has working bees every Sunday afternoon. Find us on Facebook, or just take a wander down there on the weekends. You’ll find someone pulling up radishes or basking in the sun!’
