Let’s grow together…

@ St. Mary's Field

A space where our local community can explore new ideas, learn and share.

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

We want the Community Garden to be a place where everyone feels welcome and valued. The garden has lots of benefits for those who visit or volunteer there; we are sharing skills, getting out and working as part of a team in the fresh air, and making local food, grown in the heart of Kirrie, available to everyone. Our aim is to provide a space where our local community can explore new ideas, learn growing techniques, share skills, and have a good day out, all whilst doing something worthwhile.

Buy Our Produce

You can buy our fresh produce direct from the garden between 10am – 12pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Check out our Facebook page to see what we’re harvesting!

The field is almost one acre in size. An attractive entrance of herb beds and herbaceous borders 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 where we have freshly picked produce for sale during our opening hours. The field is surrounded by hedgerow and mature trees with developing wildlife areas which are pollinator-friendly and provide a range of habitats for amphibians, small mammals, and more. We also have a social zone, where workshops are regularly held in the open air, using local materials where possible.

We want to make sure the community garden is an inclusive space and are very pleased to welcome volunteers from all walks of life to the garden.

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, by emailing our Growing Leader George, or by popping in during one of our open sessions.

An update from the Garden…

We want to make gardening accessible to everyone!

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.
