Bideford - The Little Green Town

12 July, 2022

The Little Green Town project brings local people together to learn and enjoy gardening together, allowing all age groups to work together. Offering a growing space to those who may not have the opportunity to garden at home and may lack the knowledge or confidence to try growing vegetables and fruit. Our team of community volunteers have made a huge impact across our town, bringing unloved pockets of public space to life with flowers, vegetables and fruit trees.  We are always keen to welcome new volunteers to the group, you don't need to be a gardener, everyone is welcome to join in, our sessions are varied so there is always a job for everyone, regardless of skill, age or ability!

Working with the community we are creating a more attractive, appealing town centre by reducing the number of grey, neglected spaces, transforming them to make people smile and feel welcome in their town. We are helping to make people proud of their town centre, and creating a more colourful, bio-diverse and happy place to live. Together we grow fruit and vegetables, which are all free for the community to harvest, everything from sweetcorn to brussel sprouts!

 

Come and join us and help make Bideford greener!
