Mill Farm Close Greener Than Ever

Neighbours Coming Together

Since April 2017, we have been working on the Mill Farm Close Estate with residents to bring more life and colour to the estate and bring out residents’ appetite for gardening.

We are pleased to say that we have worked with a number of residents now. Our mini garden makeovers have included introducing hanging baskets, planting in pots, strimming back overgrown grass, tidying paths back - which have all made a difference to individual gardens and the overall estate. We’ve worked with residents who have little knowledge of gardening to others who have lots of knowledge to share and everyone involved has learned lots it’s fair to say! We’ve been in the papers too - having our project story and the difference that’s been made shared with the region!

This project has been possible with the funding and support of Karbon Homes, the social housing provider. As one of the biggest social housing providers in the city, the organisation recognises the difference local organisations can make to the local area.
