National Publicity For Fontmell’s Community Flower Garden Project

Next month, 500,000 subscribers to the Royal Horticultural Society members’ magazine will read about the project to create a community flower garden in Fontmell Magna.

Organiser Sian Highnam tells Alfred she would never have expected so many different groups and organisations to get involved with the Fontmell Friendship Garden when she first discussed the idea with the Blackmore Vale GP Practice last November.

Surgery staff are supporting the project and offering space for raised beds on their land because outdoor, collaborative community work is recognised for promoting wellbeing.
