History

How the garden came about

Our Gardens came about when a local group saw the potential for a community garden in this area and on this site. There are a lot of low income families in the wider New Brighton area so the new Trustees were motivated by the idea of providing hands on learning about how to grow very low cost, quality food.

We started with some individual plots but changed to shared gardening where people do garden or maintenance tasks in exchange for free veges and workshop attendance.
