START IN SALFORD AT BUILE HILL PARK
 

Star date: 25th May 2011

GREENING £50,000

Start in the Park
Buile Hill Park
Thurs 2nd June 1-3pm free

Back in November last year Start In Salford, the top arts based wellbeing charity, won £50,000 Lottery funding after Granada Reports viewers voted for its Start in the Park venture to turn a disused bowling green in Buile Hill Park into a community growing centre. 

Now the plans for the Green are to be revealed and everyone can have their say, as well as enjoying some great eco workshops

Full story here…


Late last year Granada Reports viewers from Salford and beyond voted to give Start In Salford £50,000 of Big Lottery money for its Start in the Park project (see here) which aimed to turn the disused bowling green in Buile Hill Park into a community growing space.

On June 2nd Start's designs for the space will be revealed and Start members will be asking the community to generate further ideas too. At the moment, the plan is for Start's members to work alongside the community to grow their own fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers.

On the day there will also be workshops running alongside the discussions including `edible planting, seed sowing and trying your hand at making a bug hotel'. Sounds intriguing.

"The whole community are welcome" says a Start spokesperson "Please come down and show your support."

Start in the Park
Buile Hill Park
Thurs 2nd June 1-3pm free
