We have taken on various areas of private land and converted them into productive gardens growing lots of organic fruit, veg and herbs without requiring any public funding or grants. We also help promote the community gardens of other community groups. We welcome new volunteers who are interested in helping out in our gardens and always happy to consider new projects. PLEASE GET IN TOUCH if you would like to volunteer or if you are a private landowner who would like us to grow food on your land in return for free upkeep of your land and free produce.
