Community Gardening

As Spring arrives in 2024, we are getting together with volunteers to help make the most of our outdoor space at St Anne’s House.

For those who haven’t visited before, we have a stretch of land just off the car park which isn’t in use at the moment, and we’d like to work with local people and visitors to find out what you’d like to see in the space.

Join local resident Nohelia to share ideas, do a bit of prepping of the space and come along to see what we can do.

It could be both a community garden with peas, tomatoes, berries, and other edible goodies, and have more of a social seating space for tenants and visitors to meet one another, chat, and enjoy.
