Earlier this year PCP took part in the Big Dig, to attract new volunteers and visitors to the community garden at the Pioneering Care Centre.

Following the success of the Big Dig and PCP’s Plot to Plate project, there’s a lot of good work to showcase, which is why PCP are taking part in the Edible Gardens event on Wednesday 24 September, 10am-12noon.

PCP is joining in with community gardens around the country for the nation’s biggest community garden open day. It’s an opportunity to celebrate what garden volunteers and plot to plate participants have achieved and share what they have grown with the local community.

Come along between 10am-12noon and take a tour of the garden, visit the wildlife corner, hedgehog hotel, allotments and greenhouses and sample some free home grown, homemade food.

Last year 4,000 people across the country visited a garden on the day. The organisers want even more people to come along this year, and in particular, they are keen to encourage people that have not been before.

There will be a prize for the garden that has the most visitors so if you’ve never visited the garden at the Pioneering Care Centre, please pop along and invite family and friends.
