Colourful future for eco garden

Pupils from Oakdene Primary School in Rainhill have helped to add this year’s colour to a new eco-garden in the village.

Members of the school’s eco-council helped to sow wildflower seeds in the garden – which by summer 2015 will be creating a colourful backdrop for visitors and helping to attract wildlife.

The garden has been created using materials destined for landfill sites.

The hard landscaping, sculpture, mosaic sundial, benches and planters are all made from recycled and refurbished materials, while many of the plants have been grown and donated by local people.

The community came together to help develop many aspects of this garden, from the initial designs, planning applications and securing funding, to organising events, participating in artist’s workshops and planting wildflowers, hedges and trees.
