Waverley Allotments hosted Step Forward Tees Valley Community Hero Day on 15th August 2018

Step Forward Tees Valley participants attended Community Hero Day at Waverley and enjoyed a day creating their own miniature herb garden,
Starting an herb garden is one of the easiest things you can do. Growing herbs is an easy and delicious way to start gardening. Fully supported by our Horticulture Officer the participants had a choice of herbs to choose from and got informed steps for making an herb garden that they took home to nurture.

The participants had the chance to experience the relaxed therapeutic atmosphere garden at Waverley and have the freedom to explore and join in an array of activities on site on the day for example erecting and painting fencing, digging and bedding flowers/vegetables, an opportunity to learn about horticulture, cultivation, sowing and growing your own garden and the opportunity to stay and volunteer at Waverley in the future.
