We recently received Near Neighbours funding for this project to take place in supporting planting in and around High Town. We are looking for an individual to take on this role of High Town Gardener for the next several months, which will include:
- Maintaining and developing planting spaces throughout High Town, specifically with the goal of cultivating areas of local wildflowers for pollinating insects and edible plants and herbs.
- Co-ordinating at least three community gardening days that seek to involve participation and involvement from across High Town’s local community.
- In co-operation with Friends of High Town (more specifically the High Town Green Spaces sub-committee), initiating and helping to develop a sustainable, long-term engagement from the local community with the planting spaces around High Town.
- This project will run till the end of March 2017
Please note: this role is funded for 7 hours a week (at £10 an hour) by Near Neighbours to support the work being done. There is additional funding for resources and materials for the community days and gardening project.
