Pure Innovations’ Garden Made Perfect with the help of £1k Community Fund

Posted on the 12th October 2021

Pure Innovations has used a £1k community grant to transform the outside space, at their base in Hazel Grove, into a sustainable green zone.

The charity moved to its new two-storey base, Prospect House, last autumn. The team at Pure, with the aid of investment from the Arnold Clark Community Fund, has transformed its outdoor space.

Prospect Garden has been designed and built in a smart and eco-friendly way. The sustainability measures include: the installation of a raised garden bed, vegetable and herb planters and fruit trees. The garden is also equipped with a new greenhouse, picnic table and Manchester bee style wall decorations.

Prospect House is home to the charity’s head office team, as well as providing support services for their clients including: a café area, art, and games rooms. Now the newly refurbished green zone will provide a stimulating and secure outside space,.

Pure Innovations manager Kathryn Brooks said:

“Thanks to this community fund we will be able to grow more fruit and vegetables that will then be put to good use in our cooking and baking groups at Prospect House. The additional equipment we’ve been able to purchase will also enable us to run a gardening session as a full session, rather than something clients do at the start and end of the day.

“Many of our clients enjoy gardening and having this activity at Prospect House enables us to offer it in a safe environment within an enclosed garden. The clients particularly like using what they have grown themselves in the cooking sessions.”

Pure Innovations provides support to people with disabilities and disadvantaged groups, to get into work and access community and leisure activities.
