Our 2018 gardening season starts now!

Our free drop-in community gardening sessions are back for the 2018 season: Tuesday 1pm-3pm, Thursday 4pm-7pm and Saturday 11am-4pm. Join us at any time during the session. Sessions are run by our friendly garden club leader Alison Skeat. Tools and gloves are provided.

Whether you’re an old hand or you’ve never gardened before, one of our regulars or new to the neighbourhood, here for the whole session, dropping by for an hour or just popping in to say hello and find out how it all works, you’ll be very welcome. We garden and harvest together. There are energetic jobs, gentle jobs or just come by to enjoy our peaceful urban green space.
