Valerie visits the George Rose Community Gardens

On Friday 21 June 2013, Valerie visited the site, in Herberts Road, to see the progress that has been made in creating the new George Rose Community Gardens.

Valerie said:

“It was a pleasure to visit the George Rose Community Gardens, which are quickly taking shape. I’m pleased that Kier Construction has worked with Walsall Council to clear the land free of charge. Now local residents can turn this once derelict land in Darlaston into what will become a beautiful wildflower garden.”

“The George Rose Community Gardens is a wonderful example of what can happen when the community works together. Walsall MBC and their Green Spaces Officer together with lead community organiser Shaun Ghosh have worked hard to make it sustainable. There are many ideas of how to landscape the area one of which is an orchard. I hope to donate a fruit or nut tree when that has been designated. “
