We are currently awaiting confirmation from Swansea City Council about the formal permissions required for this project to go ahead. No funds will be transferred to the project until all relevant permission is granted. Our community garden will be run by volunteers with the help of local allotment centre at Frederick place to get it off the ground. All volunteers will receive the necessary training in Health & Safety and First Aid and will be provided with suitable clothing. A tool storage and tools will be purchased as well as a poly tunnel, organic fertilisers and seed trays so that flowers and vegetables can be grown along with fruit trees/bushes which will be brought in. The garden will be run in partnership with Shine Cymru who work with adults with learning difficulties and children from the local schools. The produce of the garden will be given to local food banks and/or sold in the local community to provide further funds for the community garden project.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project will provide volunteering opportunities for many as well as improved wellbeing as volunteers will be out in the graveyard garden sowing , planting and reaping . Youngsters with learning difficulties will get opportunities they would not otherwise have and much of the garden produce will go to the local food banks to help those who are not so well of . The project will also provide a huge improvement to the graveyard area as a whole by the installation of flower planters and benches where those who want to can go and meditate and reflect . School children from the local schools will also help out and be given tours of the graveyard and other areas to describe its rich history .
