We have activities for everyone, no green fingers needed and are always on the lookout for new volunteers to come and work with us, so please do get in touch if you fancy joining us. We encourage people to take home some garden produce when available. Activities range from mowing, strimming, planting out seedlings, sowing seeds, and watering, there really is something for everyone. Please email Nichole at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

We have aubergines, cucumbers, tomatoes, pak choi and lots of salad in our polly tunnel, along with courgettes, beans, beetroot, potatoes, spinach, chard, kale, onions, sprouts, garlic, squashes, pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, radish, carrots, and leeks, in our outdoor beds.
