A community allotment based growing space which brings together young and old, teaching organic principles and sharing good, local produce among growers and the wider community. We run regular fund-raising events and any profit we make is put back into the local community and keeping the garden running through buying seeds, plants, equipment and training volunteers. Our community events throughout the year include bonfire night gatherings and plant and seed swaps.
