Garden Buddies






Team Fundraisers

Garden Buddies is a lottery funded project where volunteers provide practical help to elderly and disabled people, who have no other means of support, enabling them to maintain and enjoy their gardens.

This community project aims to offer support to the most needy while also providing a positive focus for volunteers of all abilities.
The idea came about as a result of a large number of gardening-related enquiries we received at the volunteer centre, highlighting the need for a service like this in South Northamptonshire. Following a successful bid to the Big Lottery Fund, Garden Buddies burst into bloom in May 2012.
