What do community gardens offer?

We support two community gardens.  One at Almondbury Library and the other at Dalton Library.  We love these peaceful spaces with a mix of edible and ornamental plants, open for all to enjoy.  They offer a space to garden, be mindful, and find community but to hear independent views on what they offer take a look at the clips and quotes below…

“I like to visit after a stressful day at work.  It’s quiet and relaxing”

“It’s nice to see people from a distance while your here gardening, wave hello. You get a sense of community here”
