The Triangle Community Garden
Project Category: Registered charity
The Triangle Garden is a community garden within a local park where people of all ages and abilities can come together and take part in creative therapeutic activities, rooted in permaculture, including growing plants for food, wildlife and pollinators, tending and nurturing the environment, creating wildlife habitats and working on garden projects, such as our new outdoor classroom.
The Triangle Garden is many things to many people: a wildlife haven, a secret garden, a treasured space, somewhere to play, somewhere to listen, somewhere to grow, somewhere to learn. Our ethos is ‘Connect, grow, enjoy!’
We run community gardening activities (open to all) on the last Sunday of each month, and community events, workshops, walks and talks throughout the year, including Apple Day in Hitchin town centre. Our weekly Gardening Club actively gardens the Triangle Garden and its adjoining forest garden, and we welcome new volunteers.
We also run three learning disability projects: Growing Ability, Growing Gang and Growing Health, provide social and therapeutic horticulture, work experience, and active healthy living support for their members during the week. They are based mainly at our nearby allotment and at Ransom’s Pavilion, our small community building. We welcome help from volunteers at any of our activities.
