RHS Success for Community Garden
The Community Garden in Ecclesfield Park has been successful in achieving a prestigious Award from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
The Community Garden entered the 2015 RHS Yorkshire in Bloom ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ Competition which specifically covers Community Projects.
The RHS Judge visited the garden in early July to assess the project against the following criteria :-
- A) Community participation
- B) Environmental Responsibility
- C) Gardening Achievement
The Community Garden Group received the exciting results late September.
We were awarded Level 5 = OUTSTANDING.
This is the highest award that can be achieved in this category, being equivalent to a Gold Medal.
The Judges comments included “The whole project is a great achievement, turning a derelict site into a vibrant Community Garden ………. Overall an excellent project”.
The Community Garden is run by volunteers and works with local Schools, Community Groups and the general public giving the opportunity to learn about and grow fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Numerous events and activities are held throughout the year to help raise awareness.
Our thanks go to everyone that have supported the Community Garden helping us go from strength to strength.
Anyone is welcome to call in to look around the garden and have a chat. We also sell our seasonal organic produce. Monies from sales is reinvested in buying more seeds and plants for the next season, helping us to become self sufficient.
