Pure Garden Clients Raring To Grow in Stockport

Posted on the 24th July 2020

The Pure Innovations gardening group, appropriately named Pure Garden, has been busy-busy. Previously known as We Grow, the project is back with a new name and our clients have hit the ground running.

Being outdoors, learning a new skill, keeping active and socialising are all really good for a person’s wellbeing. Gardening is great, because it encompasses all these factors. This has become more important than ever recently and social distancing is no issue in the garden.

Growing Skills

Our clients at Pure Garden have hit the ground running since returning. They have been…

  • Hanging bunches of herbs and plants
  • Planting vegetables including, asparagus, leek, aubergines and potatoes
  • Potting some beautifully colourful begonias
  • Weeding and learning weed identification

They even came back to some impressive onions too.

Tracey's parents have frequently told me how much she loves working at Pure Garden and she counts down the days when she is next in. She always gets up really early on her work days!

The group also has another friend who visits them on the site at Woodbank Park. Bobbi the cat! He keeps everyone entertained and loves to come and say hello.

It’s so great to hear that everyone is enjoying Pure Garden. We can’t wait to see how their plants and vegetables turn out. Even more importantly, we are glad to see our clients getting out and about and having fun with friends in a safe environment.
