Big Well Done to the Kingsway Community Gardeners
“Excellent work for only having been in existence for four years. Excellent environmental responsibility and beautiful flowers, fruit and vegetables”
These were the words of the Keep Scotland Beautiful Assessor back in July when our garden and our practices were assessed for the ‘It’s your Neighbourhood’ campaign*. The assessment led to our gardeners achieving a thriving level 4 award at our first attempt…..only just short of their Outstanding category.
This is a fantastic achievement and a big big well done is due to Eric and all the gardeners who’ve put in such fantastic efforts over this year.
*It’s Your Neighbourhood is a non-competitive community environmental improvement campaign run in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
The campaign – based on the three themes of Community Participation, Environmental Responsibility and Gardening Achievement – is designed to attract volunteer-led community groups which are cleaning and beautifying their neighbourhoods, whether through community allotments, after school wildlife clubs, school eco-groups, Friends of Park groups, or adopting pieces of derelict land. Keep Scotland Beautiful rewards participating groups through a series of certificates to acknowledge the good work being done on behalf of their communities.
