Friends of Victoria Park is a group run by volunteers, based in Waterloo, Liverpool. We currently maintain a previously disused area of the park as a community garden. Our activities include organic gardening, showing visitors around, some light work in the wooded area, (eg hedge trimming and tree planting) and bushcraft. We have family groups visiting for small events. We plan to allow suitably supervised groups such as schools, scouts and forest schools to visit.We keep chickens, have an orchard and like the odd small, well controlled fire. We may soon be adding another location for gardening, nearby, also within the park.
