Scheme to help green fin­gered res­i­dents

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

BUD­DING gar­den­ers can get help with learn­ing the skills needed to get their gar­den grow­ing.

South Hol­land Dis­trict Coun­cil has joined the Mas­ter Gar­den­ers scheme to help peo­ple get out in their gar­den.

The project is sup­ported by the Health and Well-be­ing Fund, a part­ner­ship be­tween NHS Lin­colnshire and Lin­colnshire County Coun­cil.

Green-fin­gered duo Glenys Bower-macer and Jane Broome, along with a 10strong team, are pre­pared to of­fer their help to res­i­dents.

Jane en­cour­aged peo­ple to get in­volved.

She said: “Now’s a good time to think about buy­ing some seeds and get­ting them go­ing whether you have a win­dow box; a pa­tio or yard for some pots; or a back gar­den, large or small.

“Don’t worry if you don’t know what to do. Con­tact me and I could be round to give you all the ad­vice you need to get you started and sup­port you.”

All house­holds in South Hol­land can take part in this new and free project.
