That Friday Feeling Goes Gardening

Gardening Services for and by Older Men in South Leeds

Gardening can be a great boost to both physical and mental health. This project will bring men together in the LS10 and LS11 postcodes so that they can work and grow together. They will turn an unused plot of land in Middleton into a thriving garden, one that will eventually produce fruits, vegetables and herbs, all of which can then be turned into delicious jams and chutneys. 

A project like this is a great way to foster relationships and renew people's sense of purpose and confidence. The group will also help to tidy up local residents' gardens that have fallen into neglect and may be affecting social involvement. 

With support of Cockburn High School for use of the land, this project will make a substantial local impact for relatively little resource. If you or someone you know would like to get involved, please get in touch via the contact details at the right. 

Let's get growing!
