We want to build a Feel Good Garden at The Farm, that's open to all in the community. A place to go and grow.Our project has been picked by the National Lottery to bid for funding, and they're showcasing us on primetime regional tv. We're up against four other worthy appeals, each will be broadcast across the week April 1 - 5. The one with the most votes, wins.
Will you support us in our £38,300 bid? All we need is your vote. And to ask that you spread the word ... #peoplesprojects.
If successful, we will create a special, shared community space, where social and mental wellbeing is supported, and where old and young can interact to learn new skills, build friendships and get closer to the natural environment.
The money will pay for landscaping, communal seating and improvements to the pond area (including a pond-dipping platform). It will also fund better access to the site, so even more schools, voluntary organisations, wildlife and gardening clubs, and community groups will be able to visit us.
