In April 2018 a new GP surgery opened in Parton Road, Churchdown. Surrounding the premises is space that we would like to be used to benefit patients and the wider community. Inspired by similar schemes elsewhere in the country, we would like to utilise this space to create a community gardening scheme.

We are looking for volunteers to get involved and help to put in raised beds and seating, build a shed and compost bins, grow food, maintain the gardens and share cups of tea. All abilities and experience welcome. This will be an opportunity to make new friends, share knowledge (and tea!) and enjoy being creative.

All you need to bring is some gloves and good sturdy footwear.

Donations of of gardening tools, garden chairs and table would be welcome.

If you would like to find out more or get involved, please get in touch or email churchdowncommunitygarden@downtoearthstroud.co.uk.

Look out for news and updates on Facebook too.
