The Lost Garden of Plas Madoc Project
The Lost Garden of Plas Madoc Project has seen AVOW Plas Madoc Department work in partnership with Groundwork North Wales to support the community to restore and re-build the derelict sensory garden making it a safe and enjoyable environment for the use and benefit of the community.
A team of volunteers have transformed the once unusable garden into an exciting and stimulating environment for all to enjoy. The Sensory Garden has raised plant beds to facilitate access for wheel chair users and push chairs/buggies enabling people with limited mobility and families with children to access the garden.
The garden has offered a series of volunteering opportunities for residents of Plas Madoc and neighbouring communities. This has helped volunteers develop a wide range of skills. The garden will encourage environmental awareness by providing an outdoor classroom for community groups to learn about wildlife and gardening.
Peter Evans, who has been volunteering at the garden said: “I got involved with the sensory garden project because I would like to give something back to my community. It gets me out of the house and will be of great benefit to the school and community members.”
At the end of the renovation project, the Plas Madoc Gardening Group will maintain the garden. AVOW Plas Madoc Department invites the public to the official opening on Tuesday, 2nd April at 11.30 in the Opportunities Centre Plas Madoc.
