Spring has arrived and eventhough the Sprout project is coming to an end it is still the time of new beginnings. Therefore Sprout invites you all to come down to the Partnership Council and help us plant vegetable, herb and flower seeds in our wooden planters to leave behind a beautiful and memorable area full of colour, wildlife and sweet smells at our final event. The session will take place this Thursday 31st March from 2pm to 4pm at the Partnership Council, Tennyson, Unit C, Forest Road West, Radford.  We will be planting a variety of different seeds including a mixture of cornfield and woodland wildflowers to encourage local wildlife such as bees and butterflies to our office garden. Equipment, gloves and light refreshments will be provided. For more information or to book a place please contact Emma or Jabran on 0115 970 8200 or email: sproutnottingham@gmail.com.
