Hi, I am the project officer for a Community garden at Park Ave Louth which has been funded by the Peoples Health Trust and Groundwork Lincolnshire.
The Project has been running for a year and we have just started our second year. The first year was good but we really want to ramp it up this year and get more local residents involved.
With the help of Lincolnshire Master Gardener Coordinator Rick Aron, we are holding an open morning at the Park Avenue Community Centre on 9th March.
This is my first open morning and would like some pointers please. We will be providing a free welcome pack, tea coffee, biscuits and providing a tour of the garden and hopefully some demos. What we want from this session is residents getting involved and eventually taking the garden over by Nov 2015.
You can like/follow us on FB Louth Park ave community garden and twitter @LouthYcgarden.
I am a little nervous about it all and would like to know if anyone has any pointers please. Most if not all of our targets are older generation and families. The Youth are catered for and have been great, we have had numerous groups being involved and also some locals but it’s more locals that we want.
