Planned for 2020 but postponed until the Covid crisis is over, this new community garden will be much more formal than my first; the wild St Clements garden. But it will still focus heavily on being organic and wildlife friendly!
The three green spaces outside of the Five Rivers Centre main doors, will slowly transform with the pace and energy of the volunteers.
This project is kick started with a grant from Wiltshire area board.
Phases - I have three plots on this site and each will be done in separate phases around available funding.
Phase 1 - Plot 1 - Ground work and professional services. Plant donations. Assemble a regular volunteer team. Funding for this is from Wilts Area Board.
Phase 2 - Plot 1 - Planting in Autumn 2020. Gardening volunteers involvement (team)
Phase 3 - Plot 2 and 3 - Depending on a new pot of funding I will now go forward to create the area of the garden that can offer involvement opportunities to wider community groups.
Work should start on plots 2 and 3 by Autumn 2021 (funding dependant) and then I will start to invite wider groups to come along and get involved at that time.
If you have a question about specific groups, please email me on the separate email address of
Photos of the project development will be posted weekly on my facebook page.
