A brand new gardening project has, this week, been launched by the ESBC Horticultural team. The first stage of the project, aimed to make people more active through gardening, was launched on Tuesday at Uttoxeter Leisure Centre. Go Garden, which will also have a site in Burton as well as at Uttoxeter Leisure Centre, will give local communities, schools and families the chance to grow their own flowers and vegetables for use in the area. 

The first Go Garden, located to the rear of Uttoxeter Leisure Centre, is made up of two brand new polytunnels as well as dedicated space for flower beds, raised beds and general growing space. The area will be a great space for schools, community groups and anyone who’d like to get involved, to learn more about gardening and plant their own produce. There will be frequent workshops and tutorials available to all who’d like to take part.

Workshops begin in June with ‘Children’s Vegetable Planters’ on Wednesday 1st June from 10am, ‘Raised Bed Planting’ on Wednesday 15th June from 10am and ‘Planting Workshops’ on Wednesday 29th June from 10am.

For more information about the project and for details on how to take part, contact Paul Steed at paul.steed@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk or on 07966 342 198.
