Community garden brought back to life with new plants

A stunning new planting scheme has helped bring HCRA’s community garden back to life after it was vandalised last year.

A small team of volunteers braved the pouring rain on Saturday, October 31, to plant up the garden with an array of new flowers.

The restoration of the garden has been made possible thanks to grants from the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association, Harrow Council and Harrow Central Mosque.

The planting day was the second phase of the restoration by volunteers from HCRA and Harrow Central Mosque.

This time round the team was limited to no more than six people due to Covid-19 restrictions. Helpers followed social distancing rules.

The new plants added the finishing touch to the project which has also involved re-painting the wooden garden beds and topping them up with compost and mulch.
