Charity Launches Online Plant Sales
ActivLives is taking its plants to local people with the launch of online sales.
Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers at ActivGardens have been busy – and safely – tending plants and produce to keep people healthy and in good spirits during these difficult times.
While our community gardens are closed to the public, it’s now possible to browse our online plant catalogue www.activlives.org.uk/activgardens before downloading an order form to send with your choices. We will then be in touch to arrange delivery.
Meanwhile, you can obtain lovely fresh vegetables, herbs and veg plants from the People’s Community Garden on Maidenhall Allotments by means of a safe system we are operating at our pedestrian gate. Please call Project Officer Bev Baker on 07523 399586 on or email [email protected].
In buying from us, you are supporting our charity, which helps local people build stronger, healthier communities and enables people of all ages and abilities to live full and active lives.
For more information on our projects and activities, and what we are doing to keep people connected during lockdown, please visit our website www.activlives.org.uk
We do our bit for the environment too – growing varieties which are bee and butterfly-friendly to attract pollinators to your garden, and using environmentally friendly methods and peat-free compost. Customers can return our pots, trays and labels to us to use again to cut down plastic wastage (we only accept our pots, as other returns can become a waste issue for us).
All our plants are grown at ActivGardens – Chantry Walled Garden, in Chantry Park and the People’s Community Garden, on Maidenhall Allotments – as part of projects to nurture skills and build confidence.
For more information, or to place on order, please contact Fundraising and Development Manager Susannah Robirosa 07530 407302 (Tuesdays and Thursdays only) or email [email protected] or call ActivLives on 01473 345350.
