Greening the Range – A Blooming Community
Project Category: Informal community group
We are a Residents’ Association covering 400 households, who initiated a project called Blooming Community 6 years ago. We have installed planters on the streets, planted fruit trees in the community, hold regular litter picks and improve links between our community and the council and police. We hold an annual ‘Funday’ in the summer, with an emphasis on health, wellbeing and environmental issues. This has become a popular event which we fund from our own fundraising efforts. This year the Greggs Foundation Environmental grant will enable us to purchase plants, seeds and fruit trees which can not only be planted in communal areas, but provided to all attendees to create their own ‘green’ environments.
