One of our Bradford churches is helping their area be greener with their new eco garden.
Denholme Shared Church recently officially opened their new Community Eco Garden.
The brainchild of members of the church’s Vision Group, the project is part of working towards the Eco Church Bronze Award which the church hopes to achieve very soon.
Robert Priestley, a keen gardener and longstanding member of the church, has designed the garden.
It has been designed with wildlife in mind and includes: plants to attract insects, a bug hotel, bird boxes and feeders, native fruit trees, a rockery with a solar powered water feature, and seating areas for member of the public.
The Rector, the Revd Richard Burge, opened the garden and the curate, the Revd Anna Lumb, offered payers of dedication.
Helen Miller, Parish Environment Officer, said: “Delicious cream teas were served and it was a fantastic afternoon!
“The garden will be an important part of the church’s ministry and mission in the local area and residents are warmly invited to enjoy the space.”
