Ready, Set, Grow: Dandara donates gardening tools to Wymeswold Girl Guides

In celebration of National Gardening Week, independent housebuilder Dandara has donated two sets of gardening equipment to Wymeswold Girl Guides, a short distance from it’s the Meadows development, as part of its campaign to celebrate gardening.

This year’s gardening week theme, ‘Knowledge is Flower’, aims to raise awareness of the difference that gardening can make in the lives of everyone, helping to inspire the next generation of gardeners to experience the joy of creating and growing green spaces. 

The donation will provide valuable support in enhancing the community, encouraging the Guides to participate in outdoor activities and engage in a meaningful project as the warmer months approach. The 11 piece gardening equipment kits benefit from pruning shears, hand trowel, hand rake and a kneeling pad and will allow the Guides to safely nurture their gardens and surrounding areas.

Alexa Jeffs, volunteer with Wymeswold Girl Guides said: "We are always looking for new activities the girls can participate in that will provide them with new skills, and sense of achievement. The gardening kits are a definite hit, especially with the weather improving in the coming months, as it gives the Guides a chance to learn more about nature and sustainability in a practical, hands-on manner. The girls are encouraged to take an active lead in these kinds of activities and really enjoy working on projects that they can follow through, like the planting of flowers and plants, to see the different stages of development and to harvest the final crop of vegetables, to use at home." 

Rachel Lindop, Head of Sales at Dandara Northern Home Counties, commented: “We are pleased to support the Wymeswold Girl Guides to encourage them to spend more time outdoors and learn about gardening – and maybe even earn a badge or two! We hope the gardening equipment is a good start in helping them on their gardening journey!”
