We are a social enterprise that has been running a community garden since 2015. We grow a large range of vegetables and soft fruit, and some fruit trees as well as flowers. The garden users are involved in deciding what to grow and get a share of the harvest. We regularly cook and eat together, with whatever is ready for harvest at the time. The excess harvest is used to make jams and chutneys.
Facilities: Volunteering, Picnic area, Community recycling/composting, Holiday activities, Wildlife area
