A community garden in Dunstable run by volunteers has received a worthy birthday present thanks to a nearby Amazon depot.

Incredible Edible, which celebrates its second birthday this month, was gifted £250 by the Amazon depot in Hemel Hempstead to buy a new shed for 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 for their help in getting a new shed and I hope to welcome them to the community garden over the next few weeks as we celebrate our second birthday.”

Henry Low, general manager at Amazon Hemel Hempstead added: “Incredible Edible’s community garden is a fantastic initiative and we’re delighted to be able to support it. I’d like to congratulate Sahira and her team of volunteers on their second anniversary.”
