Incredible Edible Cloughmills
We operate from a 4.5 acre former mill site and maintain a community garden and wider biopark. The site is open for community access all the time and is managed cooperatively by a group of volunteers. We manage a significant food growing project and associated skills training programme including gardening courses and cooking activities for people of all ages. We use permaculture principles on site and maximise the biodiversity potential by not using any chemicals at any time. We believe passionately in bringing people together to demonstrate that life can be simple yet very rewarding. We have an outdoor toddler group, meeting in the garden and park spaces, a community fridge for food sharing, a library of things where people can borrow equipment for the home or garden and a people's shed, shared by men, women and young people. We organise regular social and therapeutic horticultural programmes and host placements for people from all backgrounds.
Different breeds of Hens on site, kept for food eggs and education.
The site is located beside The Frocess Medical Practice. Follow the lane into the courtyard at the mill where parking spaces are located. The garden is situated behind the mill buildings. You can gain access via the Riverside Walk which is accessible from the play park beside the Medical Practice
