The Let’s Build A Garden initiative uses social media platforms to provide step by step ideas, resources and “homework” to get key groups, such as children being home-schooled and those who are self-isolating, to start a garden project.

Resources for the project can be found on Harrowden's Facebook page.

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases are becoming more widespread and the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) has now upgraded this current outbreak to the status of pandemic, we are now having to think about how this affects all of us. Let’s Build A Garden is a social media and e-communications campaign initially aimed at our customers and followers but designed to encourage sharing of information and to engage with vulnerable groups, those with unexpected childminding responsibilities and those self-isolating.

Stuart Ridd-Jones, Managing Director of Harrowden Turf:
“Horticulture and gardening are “soul” activities and in these unprecedented times we are being encouraged to nurture mind, body and soul. “Let’s Build A Garden” will use social media platforms to provide step by step ideas, resources and “homework” to get these key groups and others starting a garden project. Each week a new step will be introduced – hopefully with ever-growing support.”

We have also teamed up with the #keepcalmandgetreadytogarden initiated by Porters Fuchsias and #plantsmakepeoplehappy to try to bring ideas together.

As well as utilising social media platforms Let’s Build A Garden will encourage people to send in plans, mood-boards, mind-maps, pictures and ideas to be shared and used as inspiration for others.
