This 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 will provide:

A place where anyone can come and work together

A tranquil space for relaxing
