The Shed - Community Garden Charity

Community Garden Charity with grade 2 listed stable block in renovation.

For anyone who wants to get involved in rural gardening or renovation, a chance to socialise with others, make new friends, be part of this lovely opportunity or just come and enjoy the outdoors environment.

Transport is essential 

We are in the process of applying for Solar Panel energy provision and also looking into costs of a mains water supply

Our driveway and car park area are in need of a digger/dumper so we can level and top finish

We have greenhouses to erect and new compost areas to build

Our project this year is further landscaping to include our Memory Copse, new hedging and shrubs plus a meandering path

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We very much wish The Shed to be part of Social Prescribing

Our facilities, although basic at this point in time, will provide a much needed respite for both carers and less abled on the margins of society

The story so far
The Shed has now been running for 2 years and goes from strength to strength. The Stables have been reroofed, new guttering, new doors and damaged feather boarding replaced. We have a Kitchen Garden and a base for our greenhouses which will be put up this year We await permission to install Solar Panels and a Car Park The old hedge along Jarman's Road has been stripped out in readiness for brand new saplings New trees will be planted to form a copse The fruit trees and Christmas trees are all doing well We have a working rotovator but the pump on the large strimmer needs attention The Community Crew attend at least once per month and are able to do any heavy work, ie digging roots and moving heavy slabs We welcome visitors to join us with tea/coffee at 11am
