This project is a garden/social meet up every Tuesday 10am until 12 noon in Connah’s Quay Community Allotment which is located just behind the job centre in Connah’s Quay.
Every week regular volunteers get together to do gentle gardening on the raised bed community plot. There is also a community garden area, where volunteers are encouraged to visit to relax and enjoy the calm environment. Free hot refreshments and biscuits are provided for everyone, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own mugs and £1 donation.
Many gardening items have been donated by kind members of the local community.
Thank you to our supporters
Digging Deeside was delighted to receive support from Keep Wales Tidy with #TidyGrant The funding was made available by Tesco’s Single Use Carrier Bag money.
More recently Digging Deeside have received further support for a specific project to create decorative planters to be displayed in the local community. This work has been funded by Grow Wild and work on this project has been carried out during the summer months of 2016.
Below you can see some of the fabulous pots our volunteers have decorated. These have been planted up with #wildflower seeds to encourage bees, insects and add a splash of colour on the Digging Deeside community allotment plot.
