Landmark Community Garden Opening today

The garden at the Landmark Centre is starting to look really good. Lots of great feedback and many people coming in for a proper look and chat. It is now once again an asset to both the High Street and Community Centre.

For Deal With It is a great demonstration both of what can be achieved by people 'just doing stuff' and what any garden/space can be - interesting, producing food, eye catching and supporting wildlife.

Deal Town Council's Mayor Marlene Burnham opened the garden by planting a Lavender plant for us. The Mayor also presented Deal With It with a really nice letter thanking us for the work at the Deal Station Garden and at the Landmark. With £25 towards some plants.

Imogen had arranged a nice mixture of various flavours of Elderflower Cordiale and mini-scones flavoured with lemon grass, lavender, roses and several other plants from the garden.

Music was supplied by Driftwood with guests Jon and Elaine Dean [and occassionally the Mayor!].

Great support from colleagues from the Deal Station Garden and good to see a number of people like Dave Thompson who did so much of the heavy digging earlier in the Year.

Big thanks goes to Pat McNicholas and all the staff at Maxted's for suppling many of flowers at the front and special thanks to our head gardener Imogen Kitching for her time and vision and the many plants and logistic support from Kitching Trees & Gardens
