Help needed to spruce up garden in time for spring

15 November 2017
Volunteers are being sought to help get a flourishing Hackney garden ready for its grand opening.

Volunteers are being sought to help get a flourishing Haringey garden ready for its grand opening.

Bulbs are being planted at the courtyard garden at the Green Rooms Hotel as part of preparations for its spring launch, which is being supported by Sanctuary Housing.

A session to plant the bulbs is taking place at the site, 13-27 Station Road, from 10am to 2pm on 26 November.

Sanctuary has funded a series of workshops at the hotel which has seen an under-used green space transformed into a community garden where local residents can grow their own produce and spend time together.

Work on the garden, which includes planters and seating, began in August and is due to culminate with an official opening event in March.

Toby Moore, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “The hotel is becoming a popular place for people to visit and the garden will be a real asset to the community.

“I would encourage anyone who has some time to spare on 26 November to come along and plant some bulbs.”

The project has been supported by local community gardener Luke ‘Duke’ Newcombe and Wood Green Timber, who donated materials.

No gardening experience is required and anyone interested can email Simon Cavanagh at ContactUs@sanctuary-housing.co.uk or call 0800 131 3348. Alternatively, people can just turn up on the day and ask for Hugh Chapman.
