Street Planter Gardening Every Monday
Volunteer sessions led by Helen, the friendly professional gardener from local charity the Time Exchange, held throughout the Arthur’s Hill area, working on maintaining our street planters.
For the past 16 years the Time Exchange has worked with local residents to improve the 100+ street planters in the Arthur’s Hill terraces. Work involves weeding, litter picking and replacing plants and shrubs. Time Exchange members can earn credits for every hour volunteered.
New volunteers are always welcome. All tools and appropriate training provided. The 1pm meeting-up point is the Time Exchange, Stanton Street. For further information call 0191 245 0663.
ADOPT A STREET PLANTER
Time Exchange also supports local residents interested in adopting a planter near their home. Many residents have already adopted planters, helping brighten up our area. The Time Exchange can provide advice, information and access to tools and plants. If you’re interested, please contact the Time Exchange to arrange to speak to Helen.
