Whilst Kiwi’s will remember 2020 for the year we banded together against COVID-19, many of us also found solace in our gardens or in fact embraced gardening for the first time.
2020 will also be the 5th year gardeners across the country will celebrate National Gardening Week, a national love of gardening.
National Gardening Week aims to foster a love of gardening with a focus on growing not only plants but friendships, good health, strong communities and closer connections with nature. Whether it’s a few pots on the balcony, a small patch or an extensive garden, everyone can experience the joy of gardening. It’s good for the soul!
Novices and green fingers are being called upon to get into their gardens, volunteer for a local replanting programme, join a gardening club, help out in a community garden or have fun with children and grandchildren in the garden.
Right now we’re busy planning National Gardening Week 2020. We’d love to hear from you if you’re planning any gardening events in October – you can get in touch here.
Watch this space, and sign up to join the Yates Garden Club if you would like to be kept in the loop on events, inspiration and promotions over National Gardening Week.
