Be part of the new Lemon Pip Garden

The Abbey Centre garden is being transformed into a new place for everyone in our community to grow and enjoy.

This will be a garden run by the community for the community, with accessible planters and seating areas under the resilient branches of our 30 year old lemon trees. The picture above shows a sketch of how the garden will look once it’s completed. Planters will be filled with soil ready for the community to plan and grow.

We need your help and ideas!

  • How would you like to use the garden?
  • Are you part of a group that could use it?
  • Do you have ideas for planting or a club?
  • Would you like to volunteer?
  • Do you and your friends have green fingers?!
  • Do you know others who would like to get involved?

Some inspiration for what might happen under the lemon trees:
Book clubs, gardening groups, grow herbs and vegetables, social sessions, art clubs, chill-out time, grow & learn, outdoor tea time, nature talks…
