Walk and Talk: Good Gardens; green grafting for a greener environment
- September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Organised by Ham United Group, this free walk and talk will take you through The Wates Estate, also known as Ham Riverside Lands, a charming residential development with 25.6 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.
The estate has its own appointed gardening team. In addition to that, a group of residents have formed a gardening group, known as The Green Grafters, to give a helping hand with the estate’s gardening and tackle overgrown and difficult areas. The Green Grafters meet every Saturday morning, and the group has been growing from strength to strength.
Thérèse will guide this walk and will talk about the work of the GGs (as the Green Grafters are affectionately known) and how they manage to support and compliment the work of the appointed gardening team who tackle most of the estate’s work. You will also be looking at residential front gardens and elements on the estate that combine value for wildlife and aesthetics.
