We recently we partnered with the Ballywalter Community Action Group in Co Down to donate 60 bags of New Leaf Compost to assist with the maintenance of its over 50s gardening club.
Despite COVID-19 restrictions, our compost has enabled Ballywalter’s fortnightly gardening club to continue with the usual indoor activities having been suspended for several months.
The compost will facilitate the creation of an outdoor gardening space for the whole community to enjoy and the continuation of many gardening activities such as the planting of flower containers throughout the village.
We are proud of our community roots, so it’s especially rewarding when we donate our compost to groups that share the same values as we do.
It’s truly satisfying to know that our donation will provide a vast number of horticultural therapy benefits for both the members’ physical, mental and social health, which is particularly important during times of isolation.
Sandra Henderson of the Ballywalter Community Action Group said that the contribution “will help not just the maintenance of our community garden, but our gardening club and we are very thankful to New Leaf Compost for its generous donation”.
We are pleased that our compost can bring many tangible benefits to those within our society and can help the Ballywalter Gardening Club continue to live up to its slogan of ‘flowers make you smile’.
