Have you heard about Dursley’s Secret Garden? Tucked behind the Chantry Centre on Long Street in Dursley is a beautiful walled space that is being turned into a community garden thanks to ‘Transition Cam and Dursley’ and a number of partner organisations including World Jungle, The Chantry Centre and the Explorer Scouts.
The garden is being supported by Stroud District Council’s Food Grants programme with the aim being to produce fresh organic vegetables that can be used in local homes and even businesses as well as share skills in organic gardening, permaculture and other green skills.
A wonderful team of committed volunteers meet every Wednesday morning 9am – 12noon, working hard to transform the area in to a beautiful space for the whole community to use. Once a month on a Saturday too, the garden is opened up for a ‘Working Day’ and the community invited in to get involved and be a part of creating something special.
The next Working Day in the Secret Garden is on Saturday 20 June. All are welcome (children and families too!) to go along on a midsummer day and see the good work done in the garden so far, do some digging, have some food and meet Transition volunteers. More Saturday events will be announced over the summer.
