Community Garden Project
We have our community allotment and polly tunnel which is managed by volunteers, there is array of produce including leeks, onions, spring onions, peas , cabbages, potatoes, an orchard containing apple, pear, cherry and plum trees, strawberries, gooseberries, rhubarb, blackcurrants, red and white berries, beetroot, tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, peppers, chilli’s, pumpkins and an array of herbs. We also grow flowers and plants to make hanging baskets and planters for the local community. This produce is used in our free community cafe and distributed to the local community and is managed by local volunteers. Volunteers also make jams, chutneys and pickles which again are given to the local community and used in the cafe.
