Filton Community Garden
Project Category: Informal community group
Filton Community Garden was created in July 2013.
The aim of the project was to create a space for residents of Filton and the wider community where they could relax in a garden setting and enjoy the flowers and wildlife. The original project was a simple plan with a podium seating, woodland walk and flower beds in the shape of Concorde wings recognising the aviation heritage of the area. The simple plan has now developed into a garden with a wildflower bank, rockery, herbaceous and shrub borders, bee conservation area, bug house, fernery, rose garden and individual community beds designed by local schools, colleges and youth groups. In each of the last two years the garden has recieved the highest award from the RHS of outstanding and we hope to repeat that again this year. The garden has now become a much loved area and is a venue for picnics, lunches, fund raising events and much more.
