Body & Mind Garden gets the green light

Silver Birch has been working for the last couple of months on a new concept to overhaul a large unused space to the rear of our office building. After trying to source potential funding for the project, we found out this past week that we have now secured all the necessary funding for work to commence on the project. The Body & Mind garden will be a multi engaging and interactive garden which will greatly improve our site and offer our clients a new area for learning & development, relaxation and socialising.

We would like to thank both the Big Lottery Awards for All Fund and also The People’s Postcode Trust for their grant awards which will now turn this idea into a reality. We will be posting photos during the development, so keep watching our website and social media pages for updates.

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year from all the team at Silver Birch. It’s been a busy 2013, with many new clients joining the service. We are busier than ever which is great news as we are able to take advantage of our new premises to full potential.

We have also seen particular successes in new projects such as the vegetable project and continued growth of other projects such as our community and sensory gardens. We also ended the year with our most successful Christmas Tree season to date, which meant that the year ended on a real high note.

This year should bring some fresh challenges for Silver Birch, with plans to grow existing projects and client opportunities and increase our client numbers further. We are also planning to improve our retail area in the first half of the year to ensure all customers who visit us to purchase goods are well protected from our unpredictable weather. We will also be looking at new product ranges to ensure everyone has good reason to take advantage of their new Silver Birch customer loyalty cards.

We thank everyone for their continued support and are confident that 2014 will be the best year yet for our organisation.
