Cummings Park Community Garden
The group is turning a large disused, unkempt piece of land into a community garden. The local schools are keen to build planters to grow vegetables and flowers, and are also keen to use the space for their John Muir awards. Plots, tables, benches, learning space, and a wildlife garden are just some of the ideas. The primary school secured some funding from a Participation Budget, and two local schools, volunteers, centre staff and the outdoor team are engaging together to make this area something worthwhile to look at rather than the piece of land that has been unused for at least 20+ years.
