Do you want an Urban Garden for 2014?

Published on: 27/02/2014

Five Urban Gardens are now available and will be given to companies on the Park on a first come first served basis.

Each plot is around 5 x 2 metres and 0.6 metres deep with a soil/compost mix.

This is the perfect opportunity for businesses on the Park to use this space for general gardening or to grow their own fruit and vegetables.

The Urban Gardens are located at 182, behind the hoarding, close to boot camp. A shed is located in the area, where a limited amount of communal equipment is stored and available for people to use; a common area to compost and water is also available.

There are plenty of reasons why the Urban Gardens are beneficial, including –

• They are an inexpensive way to grow fresh produce.

• A great way of networking with other people from businesses on the Park.

• A chance to get out in the fresh air and away from the office.

• You can share advice and tips with other companies and our landscaping team.

• Gardening provides a sense of achievement and well-being.

Since the Urban Gardens were first introduced in 2010, there has been a growing level of interest in how this type of communal horticultural activity can be both great for team-building and hugely enjoyable for corporate employees.

Throughout the year, Milton Park landscapers, Frosts will be hosting talks to discuss the best produce to grow and giving gardening advice. Keep updated with People & the park for more information.

If your company is interested in claiming one of the five available Urban Gardens then please contact Dawn Crawford on dcrawford@mepc.com or 01235 865555.
