Nantwich in Bloom members are thrilled to be joining the town’s thriving allotment community by taking on a plot on the Brookfield site. We hope to use it to help further our commitment to supporting all ‘green and growing’ initiatives here in town. Over the coming seasons our plans include:
- Reducing our carbon footprint by propagating and raising on site a significant percentage of the plants we use in our designs
- Improving sustainability by overwintering plants which might otherwise have been discarded
- Making our own compost and mulch to nourish plants both on the allotment and our planting areas in town
- Continuing our pollinator and wildlife friendly planting
- Growing flowers and produce which we hope could be shared with our friends in the community
- Strengthening those all-important community links
- Improving our own horticultural skills!
It’s early days yet, so watch this space for updates on progress, and don’t forget that contact details are on the website if you fancy joining us in any of our activities.
