Garden project after your vote

2 February 2017

Residents are being asked to vote in their local Tesco store to help a Grangetown garden project get funding.

The UpfrontGarden project encourages people to cultivate herbs, edible plants or just flowers in their front gardens or yards whatever the size.

Friends of Pentre Gardens have put in a grant application to Tesco’s Bags of Help programme and this has been accepted – if enough people support it!

The group is asking everyone, whether you shop at Tesco’s or not to go into your nearest store – which includes the one at the corner of Corporation Road and Paget Street – by the end of February and vote for the project. 

When you buy something, ask the cashier for a blue chip which you place in your chosen box.

Liz Court presented the idea to local residents last July after developing an edible garden at the front of her terraced home in Splott.


“The garden is planted with all kinds of edible plants including a small sour cherry tree, a thornless blackberry winding along the railings, rhubarb, parsley and other herbs and flowers,” she said.

Liz has developed the idea with edible gardening expert Michele Fitzsimons, who tried it out with other residents in the street.
