We’re open for community gardening every Sunday 12-4pm (11am-3pm from November-February) – so do join us. There’s always a range of jobs to suit all – from digging to seed-sowing to making tea. New volunteers are always welcome!
What should you expect?
Our community gardening sessions are an excellent way to learn about growing your own fruit and vegetables, at the same time as enjoying the fresh air. The garden is managed communally so everyone helps to care for the whole garden. We have different areas for different kinds of plants including rotation beds for annual vegetable, a heritage fruit garden, edible hedge plants and a herb garden is in development.
There are always general garden jobs such as watering, weeding and seed-sowing. If you are unable to undertake gardening, but would like to make tea or help keep the garden tidy, then you are also very welcome.
In addition, we work on longer-term projects, such as building the herb garden, which needs the help of volunteers. We attract a range of volunteers from the local area so the community sessions are also a great way to meet people with similar interests and share ideas about gardening. We provide tea and biscuits to share.
Bringing a group to the garden
We are happy to organise volunteer sessions or guided visits for groups who are interested in coming to the garden – get in touch for more details.
