Community garden for Stamford aims to aid mental health
A Stamford mental health charity wants people to have their say on a proposed community garden and men’s shed in the town.
MindSpace want to put the community garden and shed on a large plot at the Uffington Road allotments thanks to the support of the Rotary Club, Round Table, Kiwanis and Stamford Town Council.
A consultation event will take place on March 6 between 7pm and 8.30pm at the Shack on Recreation Ground Road for the public to have their day on the project.
Dr Dan Petrtie, founder of MindSpace Stamford, said: “Keeping active is a key facet of wellbeing and to have the opportunity of a community garden and men’s shed will provide a fantastic opportunity for the citizens of Stamford and surrounding areas to keep active whilst making social ties and connection.
“We are really fortunate to have Chris Young (editor of The Garden magazine) and his expertise to help us design this huge space which is going to be a really exciting project for MindSpace.
“Chris and I hope that many people will come forward to be part of this journey, starting with the consultation on March 6.
“I look forward to seeing you all there.”
Community gardens provide fresh, nutritious food, foster community links and build networks and provide a peaceful area to spend some time in.
