Masefield Community Garden
Masefield Community Garden was founded in 2011. Local residents suggested that the former site of garages and later a waste land had the potential to become a community garden. The site was cleared of hawthorns, weeds, and brambles.
Since then, the garden has been maintained by a group of volunteers who have grown in numbers who meet on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
– Regular maintenance of the garden and planting
– Providing regular activities for children on Saturdays as the Masefield Young Gardeners
– Supporting school visits
– Site provision for activities for families and young children
– Annual events for the community such as Big Lunch, National Garden Scheme, and Apple Day
– Donating produce that is grown in the garden to the local community
– Creating and maintaining biodiversity in the garden to encourage wildlife
– Adopting an ecological principle to reuse and recycle throughout the garden
