We launched Good Gardens for Everyone with a lovely summer party on 4th July 2021. This fun, family-friendly event allowed our members and the wider community to learn more about the project.

 

Lucky prize winners

Lucky quiz winners with their prizes - pollinator-friendly plants and a book on low carbon gardening.

 

Children explored wildlife-friendly features of the Ham library garden with an activity sheet, spotting butterflies, bees, flowering plants, a 'dead hedge', and much more. They also propagated rosemary to nurture on their windowsills at home.
