There was a CASH grants (very local grant in Manchester) that was sucessful to order and plant big Wooden Planters around the estate. . The Green Zone workers are going to help source the planters and get the materials delivered and co-ordinate with the garden centre. This was based on feedback at some of the Green Zone Events. We’ve got the money now we just need to make it happen.
What’s next? Well, we need volunteers for the next stages
- finding people who would look after a planter if it was near them
- working out the shape and location of the planters on the Estate
- checking the shopping list – (there’s a draft already) – and ordering the plants
- doing the planting of the plants, with soil, compost and the plants and then looking after them
If you can help please get in touch with the greenzone on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want ideas of what’s possible you could come to one of the ‘Containter Planting’ sessions that the Garden Centre is running.
Below is the Cash Grants form which was sent off to get the project started.
