Dunton Community Garden Group
Our aims are to develop a garden which can demonstrate organic methods in a way that ordinary gardeners can relate to and develop in their own gardens; to develop community use of the garden for enjoyment and relaxation; and to provide opportunities for volunteering, for people with and without special needs. The garden is open from dawn to dusk 365 days of the year. The Dunton Community Garden is a rural facility for people of all abilities to learn about organic horticulture and rural skills in a supportive, inclusive, friendly setting. We grow fruit and vegetables and tend a number of ornamental areas.
In addition to our regular volunteer sessions, we hold monthly coffee mornings and other events, such as plant sales, at other times of the year. These are publicised on our website and facebook page.
