GMB Northants are delighted to support Green Patch, part of Groundwork. GMB Northants Branch member Maggie Don can be seen here presenting a cheque for £200 to Simon Mutsaar, Ground Works Northants organiser and green patch volunteers.
The Green Patch is a community allotment project based on the Grange estate in Kettering, run by Groundwork Northamptonshire. In partnership with Kettering Borough Council and Northamptonshire County Council, they run a variety of different provisions for children and adults including holiday and after school clubs, volunteer days, and alternative education sessions. We grow affordable fresh fruit and vegetables and sell fresh eggs laid by our on site chickens and ducks. There are many features to the site including poly tunnels, raised beds, wildlife pond and area, natural play, orchard, green hut and toilet.
