Community Planting Fun in Totnes

Research shows that coming together to garden, and particularly to grow and share food can improve personal and community wellbeing, plus it is good for the environment too.

In early June a Community Planting Day happened at the Totnes train station (Devon, UK).

All those involved in the event have been delighted with the positive outcome.
