Help us give The Lamb Garden a boost

Gardening for Health is looking for contributions from the local community. Please help us continue our programme of gardening sessions at The Lamb Garden to promote good health.

Gardening for Health (formerly known as Totnes Healthy Futures) has been running for 4 years already and if you have visited The Lamb Garden recently you will have seen the plethora of fruit and vegetables which are grown in such a compact space. What’s more the garden provides an opportunity for anyone to come along and engage in some healthy and productive outdoor activity.

We suggest amounts for donations below which will contribute towards the essential costs for the next programme of Gardening for Health sessions at The Lamb Garden.

£10 will help us germinate new plants for participants to sow seeds for growing vegetables and salad, and compost to help improve the soil. Building on our organic foundations, we shall be sowing heritage seeds.

£15 will buy essential supplies such as string, plant stakes, plant labels, ties etc.

£20 will buy tools - broom, hand forks, and replacement tools.

£30 will help us publicise the project to attract more people to work in The Lamb Garden with us - our newsletter, brochures, posters and banners.

£50 will sponsor a Gardening for Health session at The Lamb Garden, paying for our expert gardeners to lead the growing sessions.

£100 will help us design informative signs (The Lamb Garden can be an information, as well as demonstration site for visitors).

£1000 will sponsor a bench for a memorial with plaque, in dedication.

Donating is easy

You can send a cheque to Jeremy Logie, 15 Heath Way, Totnes, TQ9 5GP, made out to Totnes Trust (the administrators for Gardening for Health).

If you are a U.K. taxpayer (and most of us are unfortunately!) Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs pay the recipient of your donation 25% of the amount donated. If you would like to give Gardening for Health the benefit of this additional amount, please email stating: "I confirm that Iam a U.K. taxpayer and wish to Gift Aid my donation". If you donate by cheque, please include a note with your cheque making the same statement and signing it.
