Former Flintshire homeless young people show ‘real flair’ for gardening
Budding gardeners at a Flintshire supported living scheme for former homeless young people have been putting their green fingers to good use planting up the garden area where they live.
Staff and residents at the Quay Project in Greenfield organised a community planting day recently to tidy the garden and plant up some flower tubs.
The Quay Team have also been helping out regularly looking after raised beds in Garden City where they grown their own vegetables and assisted in keeping the whole area tidy.
“The residents and staff at the Quay do a brilliant job, under the guidance of Senior Project Officer Carol Hughes and Project Worker Chris Ashworh, said Louise Blackwell, Community Development Officer for Clwyd Alyn Housing Association who manage the scheme.
As well as the 4-bed intensive support Project in Llus Maes Teg, Greenfield, The Quay Project also manages 12 self-contained move-on properties in Flintshire, helping young people aged between 16 and 25 gain skills and confidence to live independently.
“We’d like to thank everyone who has helped out with the Quay’s various environmental initiatives, especially the young residents who have shown a real flair for gardening,” said Louise who added that compost and pots for the recent planting event were provided by a Clwyd Alyn Local Development Grant.Spotted something?
