Scissett Community Garden

Scissett Community Garden

The long-term project is to develop an orchard, woodland walk, allotments and formal garden for reflection, on a 1000sqm plot (owned by St Augustine’s Church but worked independently by volunteers) in the village centre. The garden is sited between Scissett Academy and St Augustine’s Church.
We are currently nearing completion of the orchard, which we celebrated with a wassailing event in January, and are about to commence working on clearing the proposed allotment and garden sites.
We aim to be as sustainable as possible, recycling materials on site and we use no pesticides, in order to encourage pollinators and maintain a diversity of wildlife.
