Residents are getting their hands dirty for a gardening project at a community facility.
Plants, hedges and trees are being put in the ground at Rushenden Community House, in Manor Road, Rushenden.
An area is being expanded to attract wildlife and a long term ambition is to have a small orchard.
A hedge is being put in as a natural boundary along with some silver birch whips.
Sheppey firm Groundworks donated some plants it had left over towards the initiative.
The project was a partnership between Queenborough and Rushenden In Bloom, Swale council and Rushenden Community House Association.
Jo Marolia, co-ordinator of Swale In Bloom, said: “We wanted to keep it as natural as possible and to enhance the local wildlife.
“A lot of people are working in isolation and the aim is to get them to work together and hopefully that will enable us to do bigger environmental projects.”
