Pruning Time gardening

Pruning time project started, with a group of adults with learning disabilities, restoring and refurbishing a garden on the Brogdale Farm site. and now helps the community with their gardening.

The garden had been a “Chelsea Garden” gold medal winner. It had been transplanted at Brogdale farm and then sadly forgotten.  This ‘lost treasure’ had been designed as an edible garden and the guys worked hard to restore it to its former glory.

The Grow garden centre was impressed and offered further projects needing help.  All went very well.  Word spread.  The guys now form part of Optivo grounds maintenance service engaging in work in their community housing.  The team clears gardens, prunes, plants and builds.

If you are interested in letting us do your garden please don’t hesitate to call us and find out more about our grate service.
