Support Community Gardening with a Charity Calendar
Christmas is a time for giving and we have the perfect gift for loved ones: a 2020 charity calendar! By purchasing one of these calendars you’ll be able to tick a gift off your Christmas list and help a good cause at the same time – two in one!
What is Sage Gardener?
Sage Gardener runs a community garden set in ancient woodland near Swinderby in Lincolnshire. It is used by members of the local community including those living with dementia and their carers. As well as those who are lonely or affected by mental health issues.
Sage Gardener’s vegetable, flower, sensory and wildlife gardens act as a social hub to engage members of the community. Activities include gardening, floral and rural crafts to reduce stress and improve health and well being.
What does the charity calendar include?
The calendar features stunning wildlife images taken around the Lincolnshire countryside and the great work of volunteers and visitors on site at the various gardens.
It also features a series of helpful tips on gardening and well-being. This makes it the ideal gift or addition to the home for any green-fingered enthusiasts or local wildlife lovers.
Why should I buy a calendar?
All the money raised by purchases of the calendar will go straight towards building a new wooden cabin. This is desperately needed for members of the community to use during the winter months. This will allow regular visitors and bigger groups to continue enjoying the facilities even during periods of bad weather.
We visited the gardens in November to hear first-hand from Jane Newman, Director at Sage Gardener, about the work they do. We were inspired to hear how they help those of all ages get outdoors. To learn about gardening, crafting and experiencing the rewards of growing your own vegetables.
As a result, we were inspired to support the amazing work being done by Sage Gardener in any small way we could. Sponsorship and facilitating online orders for the calendars is an easy task for us but makes an enormous difference to the organisation.
You can buy the calendar for £10 (including postage and packing). Order through our website, or by calling us on 07707325016. Every penny goes towards fundraising for the cabin.
Finally, we close for Christmas on 20th December. All calendars ordered after this date will be posted when we re-open on 2nd Jan 2020.
What can you do to help?
We would be so grateful for your help in supporting Sage Gardener and all the amazing work they do. Once you’ve bought a calendar, don’t forget to share a picture of it on social media and spread the word!
