Volunteers needed to transform this community space in Wargrave

by Gemma Melling

A once neglected piece of land is to be transformed into a multi-purpose community garden – and you have a chance to get involved and help!

Wargrave Big Local are working in partnership with Groundwork Trust to create a community garden at their Hub on Alder Street in Wargrave.

So far the land has been cleared and the groundwork prepared so that the garden creation project can begin in earnest from Monday, 20 September.

Groundwork will create the garden with the help and involvement of the Wargrave community. And soon, this once sorry looking little piece of land will be completely transformed, with raised beds, fruit bushes, vegetable patches and flowers, and new pathways around the garden.

And if you’d like to get involved, there are lots of ways that you can make a difference!

Louise Forshaw, Chair of Wargrave Big Local said: “Volunteering to assist with the garden provides an opportunity to learn new skills in construction, carpentry and horticulture. There is also the social aspect with the opportunity to meet others and be a part of a team creating a special place for the community.”

Plans for the new community garden in Wargrave

The plans show how the garden will be transformed in the coming weeks.

Once completed, the garden will be used as a space for relaxing, growing healthy and organic produce, and for social events held for the community.

Interested in volunteering and getting involved?

Groundwork will be on site at the Hub garden every Monday from 20 September from 9.30am – 3.30pm.

Contact the Hub on 01925 271512 or email wgbiglocal@outlook.com to find out more.
