Mackintosh Community Garden
Bringing the outdoors to an inner city area.
Teaching and growing for all members of our community.
We have an area of 420 sqare metres, with a shed, patio and cleared growing area. We have a 4mx5m poly tunnel for all year growing. We also have 2 outdoor raised beds.We have an area designated for children's activities. Also mature tree, fruit and nut bushes. We are insured with Keep Wales tidy. We work closely with Plasnewedd community garden and the artist group made in Roath. We liase with many other growing groups across Cardiff. We also work with a mens shed Wales group who make and donate garden furniture to us. We have regular workshops and other functions throughout the Spring Summer and Autumn and continue with maintainance and new landscaping projects eg pond installation during the winter. We secured one small gant last year from Cadiff council to buy a polytunnel ,some basic tools and gravel to renew pathways. Funding is a big problem and I donate much of what we need for day to day running myself. We have held several fund raising activities but with out much success. The garden is well used by all ages and nationalities and a real pleasure to be involved with. We have made huge progress this year and the garden is now very much a part of the community.
Saturday from 12pm until 3 pm and various other days and time which are advertised on our facebook page. We have several key holders on our comittee who are free to arrange opening at any time.
