Rochdale Health Visiting team’s blooming marvellous campaign.

7 April 2022

Parents of newborn babies in Rochdale will be handed a blooming amazing gift by our community Health Visiting team, as part of a new Council and Rochdale Care Organisation scheme to improve the local environment.

4,000 packets of wildflower seeds, donated by Bowlee Garden Nursery, will be handed out to parents when we carry out their new birth home visit in the first few weeks after birth.

It is hoped the family will plant the seeds to boost biodiversity and help the Council hit its climate change target of becoming carbon neutral by 2038.

Alison Kelly, Director of Nursing at Rochdale Care Organisation, said: "Not only will this be a huge benefit to the environment, but it is also something that families will remember as their children grow up."
