The Garden

Wednesday 9.30 am to 12.00 pm

Growing Season

February to October

Saturday

2 pm to 4.30 pm

A space created with our community in mind.

It is a space to grow fruit, vegetables and plants together, with a shared responsibility for caring for the produce and each other, growing friendships alongside the plants.

There is space to grow fruits, herbs and vegetables in raised beds, hanging baskets and containers, as well as plenty of ground space to grow beautiful plants and flowers. A safe space, where all are welcome. The space is also available for the community to come and find peace and quiet from the busyness of life.

The garden is open for gardening from February to October, every Wednesday 9.30 am to 12 pm and Saturday 2 pm to 4.30 pm. Unless there is very poor weather i.e. heavy rain or strong winds .

Members from our Garden Team are available each day to answer any questions and offer guidance and help where necessary.

How does it work?

We all donate seeds and young plants. The we grow them together, harvest them together, share out the produce and enjoy. Our hope is that there may be enough produce to donate to local good causes or share with our neighbours. Each year all the regular gardeners will have the chance to design the next years growing scheme.

Equipment?

Every gardener brings their own tools; gloves, trowel, folk, secateurs.

But don’t worry if you are new to gardening or are not able to bring your tools as we will have a small selection for use.

All experienced gardeners know that suitable footwear and clothing make for happy gardening. Some of the ground is uneven and will be slippery when wet so please wear sturdy footwear. Also in the hot weather sunscreen would be handy.

Environment

Our garden is organic, using companion planting to reduce pests. For the enjoyment of all alcohol and illegal drugs are not allowed in the garden and smokers may only smoke in the designated space.

We have parking available and ask that you drive in slowly as there may be pedestrians moving around the carpark.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a short lead and stay with the owner at all times.
