Community Gardens – Growing Strong!

Leave a comment

The community garden scheme has exceeded its target of helping to create 60 community gardening projects in the borough by 2012 .  There are now 62 gardens registered with Capital Growth and includes our own staff contribution – ‘Box Clever’ using old recycling boxes to grow vegetables, herbs and lavender at the Wearside Depot. I’m sure the local bees in the nearby hive will also benefit from these.

However, we will continue to encourage community gardens and gardeners in the borough through the small grants scheme, capacity building,  supporting with the legal processes for council owned land and the facilitation of a forum for community gardens in the borough. The photo below is of ‘Common Growth’ a community garden located inSandbourne Road.
