Ready, set, grow: Dandara donates seeds to local care home

In celebration of Gardening Week, hosted from Monday 29th April to Sunday 5th May 2024, independent housebuilder Dandara has donated four seed bombs kits to Shinfield View Care Home 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 care home’s gardens, encouraging residents to participate in outdoor activities and engage in a meaningful project as the warmer months approach. The kits benefit from 27 different types of pollinator friendly wildflowers, helping to enhance biodiversity in outdoor areas.

Laura McSoley, Events Manager at Shinfield View Care Home, commented: “At Shinfield View, we’re passionate about providing our residents with fun and interesting activities, which is why we’re delighted to have received the donation of seed bombs for gardening week. This has greatly assisted us in expanding our garden space and our members thoroughly enjoyed planting the seeds and are looking forward to nurturing the garden and watching the flowers bloom.”

Zoey Rampton, Head of Sales at Dandara Southern, commented: “We’re pleased to support Shinfield View Care Home as part of our commitment to community well-being. Gardening offers plenty of benefits, from promoting physical activity to fostering a sense of connection with nature. 

“It’s been great to be able to contribute to the care home, knowing that our donation will not only enhance their outdoor space but also provide residents with a fulfilling and fun activity.”

Currently available at Oakwood Place is a selection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes. Prices currently start at £515,000 for a two bedroom home with driveway parking.
