As you may already be aware, we are looking to establish a new community garden for Uttoxeter, to encourage all different kinds of people of all ages to come together. Community gardener volunteers will be able to learn new skills, from making a raised bed to the techniques of permaculture and we will be running a series of on-site workshops and craft course.
We will also use the site to support other local green initiatives through seed swaps, shared equipment and collaborative efforts.
We aim to be regenerate a small piece of land that currently suffers from flooding, with support from our volunteer teams and community members. Turning the site into a havens for plants and wildlife, as well as for local residents to enjoy.
We are at the early planning stages of this project and would like to hear from all those interested in taking part (or you might just have some good ideas to share) – to provide us with your feedback, please complete this very short survey.
As we are a not for profit organisation, we can only run this project on the kind donations of others. We are actively fundraising for the community garden, should you, your employer or organisation be able to make a donation, please visit our donations page.
