We're raising funds to buy new tools and some plants to help us to continue our gardening in the community gardens.

This project was funded on 12 Jul 2019!

The community gardens are a sunken garden within the refurbished kings gardens with a fountain, disabled access and a sensory garden around the disabled access, just by the marine lake. As we are a charity, most of our tools are well past their sell by date so we need to replace them. We are also planning to improve the area by planting more flowering plants.

What we'll deliver:

  • Maintain and improve the gardens

Why it's a great idea:

We wish to improve the community garden so the many families, visitors and dog walkers can have an even more pleasant time in the gardens.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying tools and plants, maintaining and improving the gardens
