National Children’s Gardening Week
12th June 2023
National Children’s Gardening Week aims to capture children’s enthusiasm at a time when results are immediate. National Children’s Gardening Week takes place annually in the ‘warm’ week at the end of May meaning that throughout the UK children can plant all the popular plants with little fear of weather damage or the need for complicated protective growing.
In celebration of National Childrens Gardening Week, Go Green were pleased to get involved and donate supplies of both plant pots and paints to the children’s ward at Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Foundation Trust, as part of our ongoing partnership, in support of their Rainbow Garden Project. The project will see an unused grassy area turned into a children’s garden with raised beds for flowers and vegetables. The area will be a vital place to be used for the children to experience fresh air away from the ward.
Go Green donated the supplies to allow the young patients to decorate their own pots and plant seeds, providing them with a fun and creative activity to help decorate the new space. We hope that this donation will help to make their stay a little bit more enjoyable, and we would like to thank Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals Charity for the opportunity to get involved.
