Volunteers to bring community garden back to life in Ribbleton Park
A team of volunteers will be creating a community allotment in a Preston park on Saturday morning.
The Friends of Fishwick and St Matthew’s won a grant from NHS Central Lancashire to bring a community garden in Ribbleton Gardens back to life.
Grete from the group said they were hoping to bring the garden, in Ribbleton Park, back into use for the local area.
She said: “The garden itself is in Ribbleton Park, at the back of the bowling greens. We had an initial meeting about a month ago, basically for us to see the site and to get an idea where to start really, and that meeting was well attended, but we are hoping that more local residents will be interested and will want to get involved.
“The session on Saturday will be used to prepare the ground, so we will be getting our boots dirty.”
The grant money is being used to cover buying materials for the garden and training sessions from Lancashire Wildlife Trust.
The volunteers will be in the garden from 10am on Saturday 25th February. Anyone who wants more information can email the Friends group at [email protected]
