Co op Edgbaston volunteer day March 19, 2019

Earlier this month, we welcomed Volunteers from Co-op Edgbaston who donned gardening gloves and worked with Stewart and our volunteers in the glass house, potting up cuttings for the Gardens. The team were really enthusiastic to find out more about Martineau Gardens and the therapeutic horticulture project, for which Co-op is supporting through the Co-op Local Community Fund. Josh Dredge, Manager of Co-op Edgbaston said: “It was fantastic seeing first hand the incredible work Martineau Gardens does in our community. We can’t wait to tell our customers all about it!”

Martineau Gardens has been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund. It means that we will get a contribution towards the Therapeutic Horticulture Project. But we need your help. The more support we get, the more funding we could receive. So if you’re a Co-op Member log in to your Co-op Membership account and choose us.  Visit the supporting stores (listed below) to see how you can make in-store purchases count.

To date the amount raised across the four supporting stores is £1,305.54 – great news!

Co-ops Local Community Fund – Giving back to local communities

By choosing to buy from Co-op, Co-op members are helping local causes on their doorstep through the Local Community Fund. Every time Co-op members buy Co-op branded products and services, 1% of their spend goes to a local cause.
