New community gardening clubs for older people, people with dementia and their families are starting in Barton Hill and Knowle in June.
Barton Hill Walled Garden and the Let's Grow! Community Allotment in Filwood are inviting older people living nearby to join their weekly gardening clubs. No gardening expertise is required, and the club aims to provide gentle exercise, good company and the pleasures of working outdoors.
When and where?
The Barton Hill Walled Garden gardening club is on Thursday mornings 11am - 1pm at 60 Barton Hill Rd, Bristol, BS5 OAW.
The Let's Grow! Community Allotment gardening club is on Friday mornings 10am - 12pm Andover Road, Knowle, Bristol, BS4 1AJ.
If you would like to give it a try or find out more call Dale on 07581 281 578, email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Growing Support, 6 Greendale Road, Bristol, BS3 5EW.
They also hope to launch a gardening club in the Southmead area soon.
