CHESTNUT TREE HOUSE CHILDRENS HOSPICE Woodland Walk

Excitement from the Greenfingers Team as we start work on our first new garden of 2014 at Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Sussex this week.

 

We are creating a fully accessible magical woodland walk for the children and families who use the hospice to enjoy, utilising existing woodland that has previously been inaccessible to the children.  Renowned garden designer
Ann-Marie Powell has designed the woodland garden, with a landscape team from Garden House Design building the project.
   

To get involved in the garden please contact Greenfingers on 01494 674749 and for latest project updates follow Greenfingers on twitter @Greenfingerscha
