Community Garden

Among other things, the Friends of Wharton Park have created a community garden within the Park as part of the wider regeneration scheme.

This project protects an important green space and provides recreational and horticultural facilities for the wider community. We are keen to involve as many members of the local community as possible and would very much welcome your support.

We will be in the garden on the first Wednesday of each month from 2pm to 4pm. Why not come and join us and share your gardening skills and ideas as we turn this community garden in to a haven for all to enjoy.

Volunteers have worked hard over recent months to complete a path down the centre of the garden. Undeterred by the enormity of the task ahead, they set to work and learned some new skills along the way! We are pleased to announce that the path is finally complete.

Visitors can now use it to enjoy being closer to the planting.

Fruit bushes and flowers in the Park's community garden are flourishing in the fine weather. Strawberries are ripening and the blackcurrant bushes are heavy with fruit.

The raised beds are packed with fragrant herbs and a variety of leafy vegetables. Why not visit us and see for yourself?
