Corbet Court Residents & Sanctuary Maintenance
Local school children at Market Drayton Infant School and the resident committee at retirement living scheme Corbet Court, decided to celebrate National Climate Week by planting fruit and vegetable seeds in a purpose-made, raised flower bed built by Sanctuary Maintenance.
The venture is part of a growing initiative to celebrate community spirit at Corbet Court, while supporting children as they learn skills needed to grow produce.
Sianne Fellows, Housing Officer from Sanctuary Housing, said: “We were keen to build links between our residents at Corbet Court and the local community at Market Drayton.
“As Climate Week was just around the corner we thought it would be a great idea to create a space where our residents and the local community could come together and grow their own produce.”
The produce will be shared between the residents and the school children, with both parties working together to ensure the maintenance and upkeep of the raised beds continues all year round.
