SOWING THE SEEDS OF SUCCESS

Local social landlord Humankind Housing is aiming to help tenants spruce up their gardens, back yards and their local community spaces this summer by sowing flower seeds.

The Newton Aycliffe-based Registered Social Landlord successfully applied for garden packs to Big Lottery funded Grow Wild, the UK’s biggest-ever wild flower campaign, which aims to  bring people together to transform local spaces with native, pollinator-friendly wild flowers and plants. 

Sam Palmer of Humankind Housing, said: “We’re thrilled to have got the packs from Grow Wild.

“They’ve donated a wide variety of garden seeds which we are planning to work with our tenants to encourage them to brighten up their gardens, back yards other relevant spaces by helping them to plant these seeds and improve their homes and the areas in which they live”

NOTE – Supported by the Big Lottery Fund, Grow Wild is the national outreach initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
