Our community of Millhouse Green has recently gained land donated to us by Barnsley Council. This land was going to have houses built on it, however myself and our local counsellor got our heads together and after three years we managed to get this land for a community garden project.
The first steps were to plant 20 fruit trees. We then began to level out as much land as we could, planting started last year and we are still far from finish but its looking great.
Many members of our community volunteer to help, however some jobs are just too much to ask.
This is where Crowdfunding comes in.
We do have a few problems like water supply and a regular grass cutting service theses services all cost money so we are looking for other ways to contribute to our community garden.
we are aware we all have busy life styles and cant always commit the skills and time required to look after and care for our beautiful garden. so it has be suggested we set up a crowd funding page so people can donate a few pounds towards paying a professional to do the jobs we cannot commit the time to.
please give as little or as much as you can afford as every little helps.
we want to keep our garden looking as beautiful and child friendly as possible so please help with a pound or two.
