Sea Mills Community Garden
- 'Our patch is behind the garages above Sylvan Way, very near the Sylvan Way/Shirehampton Road traffic lights. We are creating a garden for growing food, with a large communal area with easy access raised beds and an orchard, small individual plots and a nature area.
- We run regular group gardening sessions and all who volunteer on the communal patch will share in our produce. We are working the Cafe on the Square to provide delicious cake ingredients for cake ingredients and leafy greens for salads. We share the plot with urban wildlife, and want to promote their wellbeing as much as we can through making our gardening 'wildlife friendly' and keeping an area just for them.
- We always welcome new volunteers, and we try to ensure there are tasks to suit all abilities.
- Contact Maria on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved.
