At Home activity programme
Our gardeners are busy sowing vegetable and annual flower seeds as part of the At Home project for our clients in residential and care homes, and people who would normally come to gardening sessions at Holme Lacy. The project has been a real life-line during the pandemic, keeping people engaged and occupied, and connected to the HGP family.
Seedlings are being potted on, and the gardeners have two new projects. An activity pack to make a fun potato cress head, and seeds to sow for this year’s Autumn show. There will be a competitive entry for the tallest sunflower and the heaviest pumpkin.
National Volunteers’ Week
Volunteers’ week takes place 1-7 June every year. It’s a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and to countless charities. Growing Point has a great team of volunteers who help us in many ways – everything from working one-to-one with clients, to supporting our events and helping in our garden.
Volunteers’ week 2021 allows us to say ‘thank you’ to volunteers around the country who have played such a key role and made a huge difference during the pandemic.
Volunteers – we salute you!
