Let’s grow together…

@ St. Mary's Field

What’s the Community Garden at St. Mary’s Field all about?

Gardening has lots of benefits, for our physical and mental health, and our planet. Our Community Garden is a way to bring like-minded people together to share growing skills and work as part of a team in the fresh air. We aim to bring more locally grown food to our community and promote the skills, knowledge and confidence of local people to grow their own fresh, healthy food. In 2023 we grew over 420kg of produce at the Community Garden.

Buy Our Produce

You can buy our fresh produce direct from the garden during the growing season (April – November). Check out our Facebook page for updates on what’s for sale.

The field is almost one acre in size. An entrance of herbs and flowers welcome you, with structured rows of fruit and vegetables across the field. Our potting shed is down near the entrance, and also acts as the reception and farm shop. The field is surrounded by hedgerow and mature trees which provide a range of habitats for amphibians, small mammals, and more. We have a newly established pond, which we hope will attract an even wider range of species to the garden. It’s also home to the world’s first 3D-printed log beehive.

Our produce is also available to buy from our local zero-waste shop, A Longer Table CIC, on the High Street. An important part of what we do is making good food available to everyone. When we have produce available, volunteers are offered a portion of fruit, veg, herbs and flowers to take away with them.

I want to volunteer at the Community Garden!

New volunteers are always welcome; we recommend getting in touch beforehand if you are thinking about coming along for the first time. If you just want to come along and have a nosey and a chat, that’s fine!

Our current session times can be found here, or check out our Facebook page for the most up to date information, including any last minute changes.

To find out more you can contact us on Facebook, or email us.

I am loving watching all the progress so far with the Community Garden. It’s wonderful to have a sustainable area for locals to grow their own veg and enjoy the fruits of their labours too.
