Tenant’s community gardens are set to give nature a helping hand

Our Homegrown community garden projects in Ashfield Close and Fforch Close, have been successfully awarded new garden packages by environmental charity Keep Wales Tidy.

Our tenant led ‘Homegrown’ community garden and nature projects are one of the first in the country to benefit from this year’s Local Places for Nature scheme.

These community gardens are creating spaces to bring tenants together to plant flowers, trees, vegetables and encourage our local wildlife to enjoy these safe spaces. All the plants, tools and materials are being provided for free by Keep Wales Tidy.

Last year, more than 500 small gardens across Wales were created, restored, and enhanced. Community groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes got involved – from disability charities and youth groups to social enterprises and carer groups.

Deputy Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy, Louise Tambini said:

“Over the twelve months, more people than ever have come to appreciate the value of nature on their doorstep. But urgent action must be taken to give reverse its decline. The initiative is part of a wider Welsh Government ‘Local Places for Nature’ fund committed to creating, restoring, and enhancing nature on your doorstep

We’re delighted that RHA tenants and communities now has the opportunity to make a real difference through Local Places for Nature. We hope other communities will be inspired to get involved.”
