Gardening

*Returning autumn 2021*

 

The Hilldrop Community Garden & nearby raised beds are the combined work of dozens of local volunteers who've given their time tending & improving them over the years. It's a perennial task, but very rewarding! We're always seeking green fingered volunteers to join us for our Thursday afternoon gardening session. We also run occasional one-off sessions for specific tasks like pond cleaning and landscaping our secret 'walnut wood' garden.

 

Fancy getting involved? Email elaine@hilldrop.org.uk

Thursday afternoons (term-time) from 12 - 3pm.
