Community gardening project secures funding

We are pleased to have been awarded £9,800 in funding from National Lottery Awards For All Community Fund, to help get tenants involved and more active in their green spaces – sharing gardening skills, growing their own and taking care of our natural environment.

Our Homegrown gardening project started in 2020 during the pandemic and aims to get more people involved in healthy gardening activities and growing their own fruit and vegetables. This recent funding success allows us to expand our partnership with Cambrian Village Trust and offer community gardening session in more communities, which will enable people to get creative with their outdoor spaces, share gardening tips, learn to grow their own and be more active in nature.
We already have several community gardens which are perfect spaces to bring tenants together to plant flowers, trees, vegetables and encourage our local wildlife. So this funding allows us to enhance our offer and further support climate action and better wellbeing through green social and educational activities.
Our Homegrown initiative is part of RHA’s Optimize wider commitment to creating, restoring, our local environment and enhancing nature in the communities in which our tenants live.

Simone Devinett – Head of Communities and Enterprise said:

“We are delighted to have received this vital funding from National Lottery Awards For All Community Fund. It has meant we can continue to deliver our Homegrown project but on a much bigger scale, make such a difference to participants wellbeing as well as supporting local climate action. We hope tenants and their families are inspired to get involved.”
