Growing in The Garden – Friends of Wollescote Park

Last Saturday (13th of May 2017) the Friends of Wollescote Park held an event which took place in and around the park. Dudley Mind’s Garden volunteers and our Horticulture Project Manager Jill Hogan was there, pictured below with the Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif. 

Jill runs an Horticulture Project out of Wollescote Park every Monday and Wednesday morning. The Horticulture Project is an ongoing project made up of a number of wonderful, dedicated volunteers who see it as a way of improving their mental health and wellbeing. The volunteers take part in various gardening and maintenance projects at Wollescote park, which range anywhere from planting seeds to putting up fencing and upgrading timber.

At the event, the project held a make-shift plant shop in and around the greenhouse area where people could come along and buy the plants grown by the volunteers who take part in the horticulture project.
