Get Involved

We are open to all ages and abilities. We aim to be as inclusive and accessible as possible and have some wheelchair access with raised beds and paths. Working together in a mixed group allows us to all work within our own limitations and according to our needs. We value all skills within the group, and haveWorking in the garden many possible tasks within the garden and within the group, and it is possible just come and enjoy a cup of tea with us.

Anyone can get involved, no gardening experience is necessary; all tasks of tending the organic garden are taught as we go along. These include, soil care, sowing, planting, weeding, watering, mulching, thinning, pruning, organic pest control and wildlife care, and of course harvesting.
We share the harvest each week, along with recipes, and other information.
We enjoy a cup of tea and home-made cakes, and enjoy a 'bring and share' lunch together, which includes a soup made from our seasonal harvest.Tea and chat in the garden

Each member also brings different skills. Thanks to one members experience and skills, we now make delicious jams and preserves from our harvest which we share or sell at local events, and we are beginning to make other products such as beautiful notelets from the photographs taken of the garden by another talented member.

There are many ways to be involved in the group, we are all volunteers, and are able to contribute in some way. If you are interested in joining us and live locally, or want to know more about us, you are welcome to get in touch by email or phone:

Funding

We are always looking for help with funding the next season's seeds, tools, sundries and running costs. We have many more projects that we are hoping to implement if we are able; our next project this winter is to put in more raised bed borders and hard paths (fittleworth stone over membrane) to enable better access around all the beds, if we are able to find funding for this. If you are able to help in any way, please do get in touch.
