A Greenhouse in Rawtenstall

We’ve cleared the litter, we’ve regenerated 14 destitute gardens in Rawtenstall alone, we’re creating 3 more around the town and now we have a new challenge…………….

We want a greenhouse!

It costs thousands of pounds a year to replenish the baskets, replant overgrown gardens and plant the new ones but whilst we’re busy gardening, litter picking and discouraging dog fouling we’d like you to try something new.

How about doing a 5k run, having your head shaved, walking the three peaks,  organising a coffee morning or giving up chocolate for a month?  Whatever you like to raise funds for our new greenhouse!

Did you know that Mike and Amanda from the Casked bar opposite the Fire Station give ALL their tips to Civic Pride or that Northern Whisper donate 10p from every pint of cask beer they sell on a Thursday night?

Once the greenhouse is up and running we’re hoping that volunteers who just want to potter about doing a bit of propogating (ooh mother, is he allowed to say that?) will come and join us.  This could be your mum, dad, grandma or grandad, making new friends and enjoying a new interest!

What can you do to help us improve your town?  Find out here.
