Everything’s coming up roses for a Dunstable-based community garden run by volunteers, thanks to the local Amazon fulfilment centre.

Incredible Edible received a donation of £250 from Amazon in Hemel Hempstead to purchase a new shed for the tools used by local gardeners.

The community garden, run by self-employed gardener Sahira Ward, opened in July 2013 on waste ground in Katherine Drive, with the aim of bringing the community together and helping children understand how to grow fruit and vegetables.

Sahira said: “Incredible Edible has gone from strength to strength since opening and support from local businesses like Amazon is vital in helping us to be able to continue our work in the community.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Amazon and I hope to welcome them to the community garden over the next few weeks as we celebrate our second birthday.”
