Community Garden

Established in the Spring of 2019 with a £250 grant from Eardisland Community Shop and £250 from the E Team.

After the closing of the established Children’s allotment a consultation was carried out to see how the project could be continued.

A decision was made to start a Community Garden project, summarised as:

  • A plot somewhere centrally within the village to be enjoyed by as many as possible
  • Potentially consisting of; vegetable beds, flower beds for cut flowers, herbs, perennials, fruit trees, seating / picnic bench.
  • A focal point for organised children’s activities in a similar way to the children's allotment
  • Building on what has worked at the children’s allotment
  • More accessible for extended families and visitors to drop in and enjoy
  • More visible than the current plot, therefore encouraging more use
  • Able to be used by any group for activities or meetings
  • Open for all to pick flowers, eat produce and do a bit of pottering
  • Encouraging social outdoor activity for all ages

The new plot is situated behind the bowling club on the recreation ground.
