The idea is to join people up to help each other to look after and spruce up their gardens. If you have a garden and are unable to look after it due to health or other reasons, you can sign up to Garden Swap and Hackney Homes will match you up with someone who is green fingered and wants to help others.
If you don't have a garden, you can donate your time to someone else and help to create a beautiful garden in Hackney. You can grow food and vegetables or just flowers to make the space an inviting and welcoming area to be enjoyed.
For more information and to get involved see www.hackneyhomes.org.uk/gardenswap.htm or pick up an application form from your local housing office.
