Would you like to learn how to garden and grow your own food?

Free training sessions will take place at Wirral Environmental Network and Holy Apostles and Martyrs Church in Wallasey, and at Callister Gardens, St James Allotments and Bee Wirral in Birkenhead.

This is a new opportunity to be active outdoors, meet others, grow food and flowers and learn with volunteers in community gardens in both Birkenhead and Wallasey.

A spokesperson for Holy Apostles and Martyrs parish in Wallasey said, “We have been awarded a Community Voluntary and Faith grant (CVF) from Wirral Council to provide training sessions in gardening and community composting for residents and volunteers in Wallasey and Birkenhead.

“This is in partnership with the Callister Garden, St James Allotments and Bee Wirral Allotments in Birkenhead, Compost Works and Wirral Environmental Network. The aim is to learn together while growing flowers, fruit and vegetables and improving wellbeing and a sense of community.

“We started our own Community garden last year and want to spread the benefits we felt.”
