New Harrowden Turf initiative: As Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases are becoming more widespread and the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) have now upgraded this current outbreak to the status of pandemic, we are now having to think about how this affects all of us.
“Let’s Build A Garden” is a social media and e-communications campaign initially aimed at our customers and followers but designed to encourage sharing of information and to engage with vulnerable groups, those with unexpected childminding responsibilities and those self-isolating because of covid-19.
Stuart Ridd-Jones, Managing Director:-
“Horticulture and gardening are “soul” activities and in these unprecedented times we are being encouraged to nurture mind, body and soul. “Let’s Build A Garden” will use social media platforms to provide step by step ideas, resources and “homework” to get these key groups and others starting a garden project. Each week a new step will be introduced – hopefully with ever-growing support.”
We have also teamed up with the #keepcalmandgetreadytogarden initiated by Porters Fuchsias and #plantsmakepeoplehappy to try to bring ideas together.
As well as utilising social media platforms “Let’s Build A Garden” will encourage people to send in plans, mood-boards, mind-maps, pictures and ideas to email@example.com to be shared and used as inspiration for others.
