Creating a small community garden in a disused plot of land in Fairfield, using local residents as volunteers with a long term garden patch and seating area for teaching gardening skills

Fairfield Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The project is to create a small garden area in the middle of Fairfield on a disused plot of land that has been used as a fly-tipping location. Local residents have expressed interest in this plot being cleaned up, and are frustrated that nothing has happened. Empowering local residents, including those from ethnic minorities, people with mental health issues and a variety of ages, we would create a visually beautiful, sustainable garden with a designated space for growing flowers and have a long term vision for members of our church to teach gardening skills to any willing participants. Our hope is into inject local pride into the community, whilst also celebrating the inclusive diversity of the area.

What we'll deliver:

  • Plant 40 flowers
  • Benches and tables installed
  • Complete site cleared and made safe
  • Surrounding walls painted
  • Bins installed

Why it's a great idea:

The project will immediately benefit the local community. It will clean up and restore a part of Fairfield/Kensington that has been neglected used as a dumping ground, rather than being used for its potential. It will also benefit the local community by bringing them together, many people we spoke to who said they would like to volunteer do not know each other very well, this would be an opportunity to bring long-lasting friendships. It would also be a benefit to the local school as the street is a route to a popular local primary school, the spot being a good place for local mums to take children to. A big benefit would be the long-term plan to teach local residents about horticulture and gardening through the sustaining and planting of flowers in flowers bed on the site. This would encourage long-term relationships and teach skills to local residents who do not have access to gardens or allotments. We hope that the project will empower the local community, and give them pride

Steps to get it done:
