Each participating garden centre has nominated a member of staff to become a Community Ambassador for all Cultivation Street entrants. The Ambassador will be the point of contact between the garden centre and communities, allowing communities to learn green fingered skills from garden centres and create a mutually beneficial relationship.
David Domoney said, “Many garden centres want to offer more help and support to local gardening projects, and members of those projects want to ask garden centres for help and advice. It’s a win, win situation.”
The new Garden Centre Ambassador Scheme only recently launched this year encouraging garden centres to help and support fantastic community projects across Britain. Click to find a garden centre near you.
- The scheme is a clear and easy way for garden centres, communities, and school project to start building links.
- Community Ambassadors are on hand to be a dedicated point of contact for all community project queries. The Ambassador will provide help and advice for community project members. This may include design and planting advice, tips on creating wildlife and allotment areas and seasonal help on what to plant when.
- The communities can build closer ties with garden centres, providing the Community Ambassador with updates, photos and progress as the project becomes a joint venture.
