Floral breadbin

This garden has been created on a once-disused piece of wasteland, which has been brought back to life by a small community team for the benefit of everyone.

 

An old tin field shelter shed has been converted into a preserving kitchen where surplus fruit and vegetables are turned into jams, pickles, preserves and wine. A dining area offers somewhere for neighbours to share their meals. Most of the space is taken up by a jewel-coloured cutting garden, grown from donated and surplus seeds and seedlings; the flowers from the garden are used to brighten up community spaces such as the library, surgery or school.

 

“Preserving the CommunityThis garden is about creating and preserving a caring, sharing community where nothing goes to waste.
