Our garden was the neglected remnant of a former school playing field. Working with the school, a local primary, we have transformed the space into valuable resource for both the school and local community.

We have planted an extensive and varied orchard. We have a large space devoted to growing of food crops, along with flower borders to keep our pollinators happy.

There is still plenty of work to be done but we are well on the way to becoming a thriving community garden.

Last year we won funding from Skipton Building Society's Grassroots Giving scheme.
