Ross Community Garden
Established in 2013, the garden supports users with a range of physical and mental health challenges. It also hosts school visits throughout the year, engaging children on how their food is grown, conservation, and on the benefits of healthy eating. More recently the garden has expanded its offering, and now includes a Zero Waste Stall, a Talk Community Hub, Growing and Cooking Clubs and exercise classes. Run by Tim Shelley with support from around 70 volunteers, it is a hive of activity throughout the year. The Garden was recently awarded B&Q Community Garden of the Year!
At the garden, people can have their own raised bed which they can cultivate with advice from expert staff and volunteers. There are peaceful spaces to spend time relaxing, as well as community facilities including a pizza oven and fully equipped catering kitchen.
