There's a Weed in my Soup!
In our community garden space we are designing and planting out a Culinary Wild Garden consisting of Native Wildflowers, Plants and Fungi.
The garden location is a hedged/fenced in closed space with a large gate entrance facing the main road. Volunteers are welcome to attend at our open volunteer sessions every Wednesday from 11am-3pm. Outwith this time, contact us for opening times.
We have a lot of volunteering opportunities at our community garden with a range of activities suitable for all ages. Volunteers are welcome anytime during the opening times. We will also have specific community volunteering events advertised through our Facebook page.
