Cherry Orchard Community Garden

Community garden project and allotments aims to increase community involvement, participation and activity in the locality.   We have a number of family groups (parents and children) working together. It is a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people from the area, get out of the house a few hours a week and be part of a really nice community group.

We see our garden somewhat like a Co-op. Everyone is welcome to join us, we meet up at least three times a week and do the jobs around the garden together – mainly around vegetables and some fruit trees but we are interested in flowers and other things as well.

We have a garden sale every Thursday between 12pm-2pm. We sell all organic produce grown in the garden and make our own jams to sell weekly also.

At the end of the season we all share the crops, vegetables and fruits if there is any left after the sale on Thursday.
