Sprowston residents are being invited to make use of two large community greenhouses which have recently been made available to the Sprowston Grow Your Community Network.
The greenhouses, which are in the Sprowston Community Hub in Aslake Close, are in a great condition and ready to be used by the community. The Grow Your Community Network is asking the community to put forward their ideas of how they should be used and for local residents to get involved in the project.
The Network, which is supported by Broadland District Council, welcomes all ideas for the greenhouses and everyone is invited to get involved with the project, from experienced gardeners to novices.
Mike Ellard from the Sprowston Grow Your Community Network said:
“There are a number of ways we could use the greenhouses. We could use them to form a gardening club for our residents or we could divide the space into smaller plots for personal use. It could be a really good way to meet new friends or to start a new hobby.”
Councillor David Willmott, Broadland District Council’s member champion for community engagement said:
“The town council and the Grow Your Community Network are working hard to give residents as many opportunities as possible and this is a great chance for Sprowston residents to get involved with something new in the community. All residents are invited to share their ideas and have a go at gardening with this new community asset. I look forward to seeing the results."
