Community Garden

We need materials for our garden plots for disadvantaged villagers, so they can get out of doors purposefully and do therapeutic gardening.

New stretch target

If your generosity leads to us being offered more than our minimum need of £300, we will make good use of any extra. We need more landscaping materials; a strimmer; hand-tools; seeds, plants and chemicals; packaging for veg boxes....... Fingers crossed.

We run allotment plots for disadvantaged villagers, so they can get out of doors purposefully and do some therapeutic gardening, growing fresh produce to eat. We are all volunteers, without any regular revenue.

Gardening has been shown to have therapeutic benefits for those with physical or mental health problems. Eating fresh vegetables is good for everyone.

The weather this year has been really unhelpful but shown us what we need for the future. We urgently need some materials to improve the plots: timber for raised beds; plastic sheet to mulch and protect soil over the winter.  We are always grateful for donations of plants, compost, tools and labour; but cannot do without a small amount of money to buy what we are not given, when we need it.  To get ready for next season, we need at least £300.

Please will you consider making  a contribution?
