To help ensure there’s a riot of colour in the County Town next spring, Maidstone Borough Council is organising a number of community bulb planting days for everyone to get involved in.
Efforts will be focused in Cobtree Manor Park and Mote Park where we’ll be planting a wide selection of bulbs including daffodils, crocuses and snowdrops.
You don’t need to be an expert gardener as no experience is necessary and all equipment will be provided, although you’re welcome to bring along your own if you have a trusty favourite spade or trowel.
The first session will be at Mote Park on 27 October and members of the public can come along any time from 11am to 2pm to lend a hand. There will be two sessions at Cobtree Manor Park on 30 and 31 October. Both of these will run from 11am to 2pm and everyone is welcome to come and join in.
Cllr Paul Harper, Chair of the Heritage, Culture and Leisure committee, said:
“Community gardening is well known for bringing people together and also improving our environment. We have beautiful parks and open spaces throughout Maidstone and this is a great opportunity for people to come together and help make them even better. While the individual planting sessions may only be a few hours, they will leave a lasting legacy for the whole community to enjoy.”
There’s no need to book and you don’t have to come for the whole session; any help you can give will be very gratefully received.
