Gardening Club

Hosted by Valerie Segree, a local with a great interest in everything green, The Gardening Club runs twice a week, with a wide range of age groups taking part. Not only is this a fun experience but an educational one, we find many parents and children coming to it as a source of sharing and gaining skills in gardening. Our 18 raised allotments were created in the summer of 2013 when we hosted a corporate volunteering day with the Bank of America. They helped us line and fill the allotments, which were later given out to locals. In the spirit of recycling, the produce is shared with The Oasis Cafe and recipes, tips and tricks of the gardening world are traded between neighbours feasting over The Long Table.   garden-1
