Gardening 2.0

After the success of the Strathclyde gardening project, the men's scheme has decided to give its garden a makeover too...

A small group of residents, guided by a G5 volunteer, are planning to de-weed, restructure and revamp their outdoor space. The activities will take place every Monday and support individual mental wellbeing as well as benefits other residents now and in the future.

Our G5 volunteer was himself in the men's scheme over 10 years ago and is keen to pass on what he has learnt and provide activity to support resident's independence and wellbeing. Having also completed a Skills for Life course and diploma in horticulture with Stockport Homes, he is a fantastic example to our residents.

Consultation has shown that the men do not want their garden to be 'pretty' so expect shrubs, evergreens and vegetables - watch this space!

The re-developed and much loved Strathclyde garden - thanks G5!
