Blooming marvellous! Ty Enfys creates community garden with local school children
Ty Enfys, our care home in Pentwyn have worked in partnership with Pontprennau Primary School to plant cherry trees and tulip bulbs to brighten up the local area.
Care workers at our residential, nursing and dementia home have been working with Cardiff council to gain permission to look after the neighbouring piece of land on Pentwyn Road.
It’s taken several months to plan, but year five school pupils, residents, care workers and Regional Gardener at Ty Enfys Nick Mannion have commenced works, planting two cherry trees and 150 tulip bulbs ready for spring.
The next phase will see them prepare wildflower seed with residents and school children choosing the desired seed colour early next year.
The home is seeking to create a community garden where it’s maintained and supported to bloom with assistance from residents, care workers and Pontprennau Primary School children.
General Manager at Ty Enfys Care Home, Sujjata Singh said: “This is a project we’ve been working on for some months, so to see the first phase come together was wonderful. We want to make the area not only a fun project for Ty Enfys but the local community too and also to make it a lovely area for people to view as they drive by. We can’t wait to see the trees come into bloom in April/May time.”
Year Five Teacher at Pontprennau Primary School, Emma Cameron said: “The children at Pontprennau Primary School were so thrilled to be part of the community project to plant trees with Ty Enfys Care Home. It was an excellent learning experience for our pupils, and a great way to show them the value of community spirt!.”
