Demelza garden is a winner for wildlife

04 September 2019

Demelza’s gardening team, lead by Sam O’Brien, Head Gardener, have been awarded a prestigious Gold accolade by the Kent Wildlife Trust in their Wild About Gardens competition.

Sam and the team have been busy creating a wildlife friendly environment at Demelza Kent, including introducing more plants that are native to the county and building creature comforts for visiting species, such as hedgehog houses and insect hotels.

The team rely on the support of volunteers to keep the six acres looking their best for families all year round, and their hard work has paid off, as they have also been nominated for the additional 'Garden with the Best Buzz' award!

Sam said: “We are delighted to have secured this prestigious award thanks to the dedication of the team and are looking forward to the award ceremony on 24 October”.
