PLANTERS IN THE GROVES

It’s Donated is an integral part of the GROVES community . It is supported by many local residents who make donations. It also supports many local residents who are in financial need by providing a source of affordable provisions. Increasingly it is becoming a centre for people who need more emotional support. At present the Groves has no community centre so local people often use the shop as a casual drop in centre where they feel welcome and comfortable.
The GROVES residents association has its theme this year of Greening the Groves. The aim is to improve the environment and make it a better place for people who live, work and who are friends of the GROVES. For 2019 the association has received a grant from the council to develop the secret garden for the use of local residents. Flower power York has also received a grant to support local residents in developing their own skills and improving the area by planting more greenery.

SUMMARY

There is still much more that could be done to enhance the Greening of the Groves.
This will provide food and habitat for pollinating insects and birds as well as a nicer environment for people to enjoy. The Groves Association wants to work in partnership with JLIF to improve the local environment.
In June 2019, JLIF with the help of other shop owners and local volunteers installed 7 1 metre square planters outside the shops in Lowther Street, The Groves, York.
