The first estate to benefit from the scheme was Adams Garden Estate in SE16. Three Cavendish students and two staff members assisted volunteers and staff from Time and Talents and Urban Growth to clear raised beds and garden areas.
Some of the plants, such as the hollyhocks, that had got out of control were salvaged and will be replanted elsewhere after they have received some much needed attention.
Beds were weeded, cleared of leaves and litter and the soil was prepared ready for new trees and bulbs to be planted.
Among the things planted were rowan trees, daffodils, anemones, muscari, crocus, tulips and snowdrops.
Residents from the estate were delighted with what was achieved and we look forward to continuing this work on other local estates.
