Garden Makeover at Alexandra House, Eastwood, with a little help from our friends, from Nottingham University

............ from the SB (Nottingham University) Allotment Society– March 2019. Our first three-intergenerational project.

A great team from Sutton Bonnington Allotment Society, lead by Joe;

Joe and the ‘ground force’ team implemented a great transformation of this sloping site, overgrown with ivy. Joe commented "This is the first phase of what is likely to be a three- phase project, we hope that this relationship with Alexandra House can be one that stands for a very long time."

Alexandra House has strong links with Brookhill Leys primary school where a group of children visit the home every week, so they too will be involved in the garden project. 

Our very own ground force team rose to the challenge of the slopes....


Manager, Caroline Carraher added "we have many green fingered residents who love being in the garden" making this a three- generation garden project, giving the residents and their families something to enjoy'


The next phase of the project is due to commence in the middle of May, said Activities Coordinator Matt "Our aim is to get the garden looking all lovely and colourful for our residents, ready for our summer fayre on 29th June."
