Gardening beginners or experts are encouraged to take part in a blooming great community initiative in Armley.

The initiative plans to create a community garden near the Bundles charity shop on Gelder Road. The area will be used for socialising, gardening and potentially growing food. 

The project, which will work alongside Climate Action Armley, is calling on people to join in the project, even in a light capacity. 

Victoria Kortekaas, ABCD Community Leader, said: “It’s about creating a community and bringing communities together to work in a space. We’re not just wanting people who are involved in Armley Action Team, but people involved in other volunteer groups.

“It’s about bringing our community together and making a space that the community feels comfortable in. It’s going to be a community-led project.

“We’re looking for people with ideas, and people who want to get involved practically. It can be people who want to find out more about gardening, or experts. We’re looking for a wide range of people.”
