Christchurch School Community Garden
We love improving green space, project after project, here at Christchurch School Community Garden. We aim to create a beautiful space filled with colour and wildlife, one plant at a time.
Since we started in October 2017, we have welcomed hundreds of visitors on our weekly Open Fridays and Weekend Event Days. Visitors and regular volunteers have donated plants and created beautiful award-winning ornamental borders and food-growing areas. We have won funds to install an outdoor classroom/community hub, greenhouse, work shed, wildlife pond, bee hive enclosure and composting facilities. We have planted over 250 hedging plants and trees, 1000+ bulbs and improved a much loved but underfunded Forest School with tree management and wild flower areas. Most recently, we have won funds from The Orchard Project charity to plant a beautiful Orchard in the Garden and adjacent playground. We now have a fence of espaliered apples, pear, plum, gage, quince, apricot and pomegranate trees to add forage for pollinators and food (eventually!) for the community.
