The Garden Project is a project where users of the centre, refugees, asylum seekers and volunteers work together on turning what was previously a piece of waste ground behind the Sycamore Centre into a garden.
It is a wonderful wild space with hidden treasures and amazing wildlife, part of St Ann’s Allotments.
A keen team of volunteers are working on it alternate Wednesdays and Saturdays. But we need more volunteers – you just need to be keen and reasonably fit- we will show you what to do! We also need a bank of people with practical skills such as laying paths and steps, building compost bins and general heavy work.
A new Gardening Coordinator, Denise, is currently working on plans for the future of the garden.
The garden provides:
- A place where anyone can come and work together
- A tranquil space for relaxing
- Produce for our Saturday group and the community café
Started last Autumn, the garden is progressing well, tended by regular gardening sessions every week.
