Gardener James Brewer has been chosen to design an inspiring new garden for Harborough’s Ecohome project.
Harborough garden designer James saw the opportunity advertised and thought it was the perfect opportunity to give something back.
The appointment was this week announced by project co-ordinators Sustainable Harborough and Seven Locks Housing.
James said: “It’s going to be an exciting challenge – the family want space to grow fruit and veg and some grass to play on, and I’m interested in how we can work sustainably in conjunction with nature – my job is to do all of this and make it look great.”
The garden is in the design phase with work due to start next month.
Sustainable Harborough is now calling for volunteers who are able to give some time during the week to help create James’ design.
Gavin Fletcher, of Sustainable Harborough, said: “I’m really excited to have James working with us on this project as it will bring together sustainable garden design, family life and community volunteers.”
Once it is completed the public will be able to view the garden, as well as the house, during the first Green Open Homes event which will be held in May or June.
