Growing Together is a community gardening initiative on the Bournville estate in Weston-super-Mare. Delivered by Alliance Homes, a North Somerset Housing Association, in partnership with the local community, our aim is to develop vibrant and exciting green spaces in the local area. We currently have two community allotments and a sensory garden all located a stones throw from the local Parade. We offer volunteering and training opportunities in gardening and cooking, whilst delivering a host of one-off activities from building bug hotels to cob pizza ovens. Our aim is to support and nurture people and strengthen the local community by 'Growing Together'
Our two community allotment sites are closed to the general public, however our Community Garden named the Bournville Chocolate Garden is open to the public 7 days a week during the hours of light. The Chocolate Garden can be located on the corner of St Andrews Parade, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 3SS. Toilets can be located in the For All Healthy Living Centre on the adjacent side of the Parade.
Bike lock stands and free parking can be located on St Andrews Parade. Weston-super-Mare train station is 1.1 miles from the Bournville Chocolate Garden and approx. 1.5 miles from our two community allotment sites. There are regular train services north to Bristol. Local bus services run regularly from the town centre to the Bournville area.
