Guerilla gardening – let the petal see the metal
Project Category: Other
From October to December 2017 we at TheWharton Tust, The Annexe have been randomly planting over 5000 crocus and daffodil bulbs out in the community of Dyke House. We have a great team of volunteers who were out even in the snow! #geurillagardening
So far we have planted at The Nasir Mosque, Brougham Primary School, St Oswald Church, Brecongill Close, Parton Street, Lancaster Road, Powlett Road (near Greggs) and Allerton Close. #makedykehousebeautiful
We have been educating children as we go and the work has brought people together, reduced loneliness and increased physical activity.
Next steps are looking at putting some fragrant shrubs that are perennial and do some gardening work in the North of the Community. We also want to plant some flowering trees and plan to do more wild seed mini meadows, last years meadows were fantastic.
If any of you keen gardeners have any seeds to share with us or handy tips please do so. We collected thousands if seeds last year from our meadow and hopefully they will all take this year.
We have had great fun and the small grant from Greggs has and will enable us to continue doing environmental work. #greenerwithgreggs
