The Gorsey Garden (Community Garden)


This is now the fourth growing season for The Gorsey Garden (COMMUNITY GARDEN) which was created in 2013. We continue to grow both in size and in the numbers who come along to enjoy the horticulture or just to sit and enjoy the surroundings of a garden.  Throughout the year we hold various events for families to join in and have just recently hosted events for a local primary school which we hope to work alongside in the months to come so that children will come to appreciate nature, wildlife, growing food and respecting their local environment. 

The Gorsey Garden Community Garden is open to ALL AND HAS DISABLED ACCESS and is FREE.  We work in partnership with New Charter who support us and provide resources  for our meetings and events.  Lots of people from the local community and other organisations have been involved in behind the scenes work and dedicated their free time to bring this project to where it is today.  We would like to thank ALL involved and feel free to view our great pictures in our gallery to see the hard work that has been done and the fantastic transformation.

NEXT EVENT : Our next event dates are now set for working days in the garden they are monthly 2nd Sunday in the month starting in May 11.00am to 3.00pm.
