At Richmond Northampton we are always very keen to help within the local community and we have been lucky enough to help with planting seeds in the Victorian Greenhouses at Delapre Abbey.
We have been allocated an entire greenhouse to plant up and visit weekly to tend to plants. Delapre have volunteers that will look after the plants on the days when we are not able to be there. This will give residents an opportunity to appreciate the lovely gardens and for those that are not keen gardeners they can taste the homemade cakes. All produce grown will be distributed amongst residents with a percentage going to Delapre to go on to make into Chutney and raise funds to keep the greenhouses going and continue restoration on the other greenhouses available.
