Chandlers helps to complete community garden

Sussex independent builder’s merchant, Chandlers Building Supplies has donated products to Seaford Exchange to help build a garden classroom for the local community.

Chandlers helps to complete community garden

The Exchange Project was launched in 2007 to transform a derelict site into a community garden.

A classroom is currently being built so that the garden can offer a further educational element to local people.

The site now has a Mediterranean corner, a wildlife zone including a pond and a children’s play area. In addition, there is a patch dedicated to growing a wide variety of fruit and vegetables organically. Unpaid volunteers of all ages and abilities continue to maintain the gardens.

Nigel Williams, Chandlers Ringmer sales office manager, commented: “We were delighted to be able to support the Seaford Exchange Community Garden Project. Giving back to the local community is always something we strive for and we hope that everyone in the area will be able to enjoy the garden for years to come.”
