New for 2017
In February, this year Green Synergy signed a lease for 2.5 acres of very overgrown and unloved land at the back of Lincoln County Hospital, in the heart of one of Lincoln’s most deprived wards.
Together with local residents, community groups, schools and hospital staff and patients, local businesses and funders we are transforming the site into a beautiful, edible, friendly community garden. The addition of multi-use pathways, wheelchair accessible raised beds, large vegetable plots, fruit cages, polytunnels, therapeutic gardens and a wildlife adventure trail will ensure that garden will be space that everyone can enjoy.
The garden will be used to provide a range of therapeutic, educational and skills based projects. These will be designed to help tackle poverty and health inequalities, improve physical and mental wellbeing, help people build skills for life and work, re-connect society to food production, provide fresh affordable produce, increase environmental sustainability and bring the community together.
So far Green Synergy has received support for the project from Public Health Lincolnshire, Grow Wild, The NGS Elspeth Thompson Bursary, Bromhead Medical Trust, for which we are very thankful. We are currently raising further funds through a crowdfunding campaign to build the garden infrastructure, set up projects and start a social enterprise (so we can be financially sustainable in future). click here to support us.
