Floral plan for fire station
HORTICULTURE students are planning to create a community garden in the grounds of a fire station.
The team have written to hundreds of local building suppliers asking for donations, including timber for raised plating beds, trellises for climbing fruit, and compost bins.
They hope to start work on the garden outside Newcastle Fire Station in April.
The Newcastle College students have already designed its layout, which includes a wormery, sand pit, paved area and wheelchair-friendly features.
