Go green in the garden!

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Maxi Martin launched a 16-page booklet on Wildlife Gardening and Composting on Friday 19 September, produced by the Merton Gardens & Allotments Habitat Action Plan Group (HAP), to be distributed to every home in Merton over the next few months.

The booklet “Go Green in the Garden”, the brainchild of Suzanne West who ran Merton Going for Green, covers topics such as organic gardening, pest control and composting. It aims to encourage the reader to set up their garden or allotment and grow their own fruit, vegetables, flowers and herbs in the Borough. The Bridge House Trust, with the help of Merton Council, funded the booklet and its distribution costs.

Councillor Maxi Martin added, “This is an excellent example of a productive community group, and I look forward to lots more environmentally green gardens in Merton.”
