Our planting group is made up of people who want to grow more plants in Honiton. This might be fruit and vegetables, trees or plants to attract more wildlife like birds, bees and butterflies. This group have planted trees in The Glen (see Spring into Action & Weeding trees in June) and transformed neglected areas of town like the herb wall behind the bus stops on New Street (see All about our herbs & New Street Wall Makeover).
The planting group are chatting to the train station staff and library staff about adding planters to those areas and are planning a very exciting new venture. The Thelma Hulbert Art Gallery was looking for some help with their garden and it looks like our planting group will be involved so watch this space….!
If you are green fingered or would like to be – have at least one hour a month to spare (you don’t need to give lots of time) then please get in touch. Email Lynda at email@example.com or text/call 0781 1444452. The group welcomes people of all ages and abilities who want to put something back into our community.
