FRESH air, exercise and a chance to get away from computer screens and the pressures of the modern world. That’s the thinking behind creating an eco garden at PrintSearch’s headquarters in Trafford Park.
Finance manager Joanne Seaton is one of the driving forces behind the project and revealed that things are really set to take shape over the autumn.
“We have chosen the plot where we plan to do it and digging will begin this month. We have a team of nine people who will volunteer to help, prep , plant and maintain the garden. We will be planting a selection of bulbs that will flower in the spring, plus rose bushes, shrubs and some winter bedding plants – which we will replace in the spring. The team will be working hard on the plot over the autumn before the winter kicks in when they will be looking to do some maintenance like weeding and clearing up.”
Victoria Hart, DCB group managing director said:
“It’s a brilliant idea. Not only will it be great for the environment but we hope it will add to the wellbeing of our staff as the eco garden will become a place they can go to enjoy the wildlife and the plants and to relax. Joanne and her team are doing a fantastic job and I can’t wait to see it develop.”
