About this project

Help us kickstart our wonderful Community Garden in Cornhill/Stockethill! Cornhill/Stockethill is a built-up residential neighbourhood where the vast majority of residents don’t have access to a private garden. By developing a community garden, the space will provide residents with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors, connect with nature, grow their own food, improve their health and wellbeing, and instil a sense of pride in their community whilst enabling residents to develop stronger ties to their area. We want residents to take ownership of the fantastic space that is available and develop the garden in whatever way they desire. If we were successful in our application, we would use the grant to buy storage containers, tools, raised beds, benches, and grass-safe matting for wheelchair and pram access to the garden.

‘Sharp Response’ provides a daily mobile crisis outreach service targeted to those alcohol/drug users deemed to be at highest risk. The service goes to the individual wherever they are, rather than waiting for the individual to come to the service and so we are requesting funds for an electric car to make our service more sustainable.
