Our Community Gardening Group has been going for nearly two years now and has turned a once neglected area into a thriving community garden, with herbs, peas, lettuces, strawberries and tomatoes all grown last year, as well as lots of wider planting and weeding around the estate.
We’ve built a few big raised beds and done a lot of prep work for this year. We’ve also planted a 100m native hedge alongside the road to increase local wildlife & reduce pollution with the support of our local councils and our next key step is finding someone to support & guide us with larger scale vegetable growing.
Once a month from March to November we have community action days on a Saturday, from 10am to 1pm followed by a free pot luck two course lunch.
Access: We exist to support & improve our Community. Initially set up & run by neighbours for neighbours, membership is limited by geography, but we accept & embrace wonderful volunteers from all over the Stroud area, who each bring something special to add to our community spaces.
Geographic Area: Middle of the Hill - which includes parts of Bisley Old Road & Summer Street, & all of Nouncells Cross & Middle Hill in Stroud.
Opening Days: Weekly on Friday. Once a month on a Saturday
Opening Times: Fri 10:00 - 12:00, Sat 10:00 - 13:00
We don't use pesticides, we compost, we recycle wood etc where we can for projects & are definitely wildlife friendly.
