Have you seen our beautiful planters at the front of The Hub? These were made by the local charity Belville Community Garden Trust whom delivery a range of activity's at their garden in Belville Street Greenock.
The Community Garden is on the site of the 1960’s high rise flats which were demolished in 2014. ‘Our Place’ Big Lottery Fund made investment and built a garden to bring community groups and individuals together in the east end of Greenock. The main activities of the organisation involve building a safer, stronger community around improving lifestyles, and health primarily through gardening, horticulture and healthy eating. They aim to break down social barriers for young and old alike and offer the chance of new learning experiences, improved community relationships, a sense of pride in the environment and improved mental and physical wellbeing.
Currently the activities offered at the garden are......
* Gardening Club
* Basic Vegetarian Cookery Classes
* Master Class Cookery Lessons
* Construction Skills/Planter Building
Garden planters are also on sale at the garden and proceeds go back into the charity.
