Greenfingers plan to build an inspirational new garden at the children’s hospice to provide a great new space for the children and families who benefit from the services provided at Little Havens to enjoy.
Potential donors and supporters from the horticultural industry came along to Little Havens for a tour of the hospice facilities and the proposed site of the new garden and to view plans for the design of the garden. Matthew Eden of Eden Horticulture is designing the garden and, if sufficient funds are raised, work should be underway to transform the space this autumn.
Plans for the garden include fruit and veg growing areas in raised beds for wheelchair access, long grass and wildflower areas, a water feature, a central amphitheatre and an impressive ‘big top’ which will be used for fun activities and outdoor therapy sessions.
The garden at Little Havens is one of ten that Greenfingers hope to build over the next two years as part of their ambitious Rosy Cheeks Appeal. The appeal aims to raise £750,000 to help deliver more gardens at more hospices for even more children to benefit from.
