Want to join us in our new community garden project?

Sunshine and showers greeted the Loveworks Garden Launch in May 2019 – both essential components for a successful garden.

We are looking to build a team of volunteers for the Garden Project and all levels of gardening expertise are welcome. It’s just great to be outside!

The plot has been unused for a while and is rather overgrown. Over the summer volunteers, and a Community Payback team,  worked on the allotment uncovering hidden paths, old children’s gardening tools and an abandoned fox den. The council installed 6 large raised beds for us, so we started growing straight away.  Successful crops have included cabbages, courgettes, squashes, beans, strawberries and sunflowers.

Produce has been provided to Loveworks foodbanks, Merstham Mix Cafe and Community Fridge.

The plot is on the Park Lane Extension site in Reigate, which is to the south of the stream running alongside the main allotments near the rugby club.  Look for the Loveworks banner.

The plot is usually  manned every Friday morning between 10:30 and 12:30pm. Check facebook @loveworks.org

Just come along, or to find out more about the project and how to get involved, email Laura at garden@loveworks.org.uk
