Helen Colman, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “Creating beautiful places to live is at the heart of what we do and gardens can play an important role in our sense of wellbeing. National Gardening Week is all about encouraging new gardeners so we thought it would be a great opportunity to help encourage younger generations to get involved and develop a passion for gardening. We’re delighted to be able to support local schools in the communities in which we build and hope the children enjoy using the new equipment.”

National Gardening Week was launched six years ago by the RHS and since then has grown into the country’s biggest celebration of gardening. This year’s theme focuses on inspiring new gardeners to get involved in growing plants and flowers.© Dave Fleming/ UNP 0845 600 7737Whistle 36474 CALA Homes - Young Gardeners - St Mary's School - Haddenham - Job:36474(Surnames not permitted)L-R, Emelia, 5, Ocean, 5, Gabriel, 4, Karen Collett, Head Teacher.
