Community Food Garden Created at Kenwood Hall Hotel

14th May 2020

The local community of Nether Edge are using Kenwood Hall Hotels greenhouses and grounds to create a community food garden.

The volunteers have made a lot of progress in just a few weeks. Supporting the local community is really important to Kenwood Hall and they are really excited to see the results!

Alison Teal, Councillor for Nether Edge and Sharrow ward, who organised the project said:

"It is really exciting to have made a start on creating a community food garden and we have more and more people wanting to volunteer. In less than two weeks we have cleared the site of weeds and started to prepare the garden beds. The staff at the hotel are being so supportive and helpful. I am really impressed by how community minded the hotel management are. I am hoping we will have a great harvest by the end of the summer!"
