Through this project we will improve the lives of people within our community because we will be creating a vibrant hub where everyone can come and enjoy the space that we have together. There is something for everyone, whether you are older or young, a student, volunteer, disabled…it doesn’t matter; no one is excluded!

With funding from the People’s Millions we will create a multi-purpose green and growing space for members of the local community. Groundwork will provide horticultural sessions and develop the skills of volunteers to maintain the space and become volunteer champions. The space will host a wildflower garden, miniature forest, ball court area for the Playgroup and youth projects, sensory garden for disabled children, a formal seating for older people and establish a growing area which will facilitate new education programmes around growing your own produce.

We know that having beautiful outside spaces helps people to lead happier and healthier lives. Gardening projects are well documented as helping to get people active and bringing them together which bridges gaps between culture and generations. In addition to this we will be delivering new learning activities enabling people to develop new skills.

Ultimately we want to create a space that inspires creativity and encourages the next generation of volunteers!

As a worker with older people if Ladybarn was successful in winning it would make their lives a lot easier. They could enjoy the outside, we could hold planting projects, enjoy picnics and much more!!! Please vote for Leafy Ladybarn!!
