Planting the Wellbeing Gardens

Eleven members of the Friends of the Tud Valley – Costessey Community Gardening Club, selflessly dedicated their time this morning, planting up the new Wellbeing Gardens at the Costessey Centre.

Building on the positive response to the Sensory Garden beds in Costessey Park, we sought funding for a larger, fully accessible pollinator-friendly “Well-BEE-ing Garden,” also in the park, adjacent to the car park and main path. The design for the garden was based on a series of seven hexagonal inter-linked raised beds representing a honeycomb effect. We were successful in securing £5000 from a Saffron Housing Community Grant which enabled us to start the project with the construction of five beds whilst we continued our efforts to apply for other funding to complete all seven.
