Belville Community Gardens offer a range of activities both indoors and outdoors.
Despite the lifting of Covid restrictions, cases still remain high. To reduce the risks we will continue to provide hand sanitizer at our offices and encougage use of face covering for those with health vulnerabilities.
Please note that you will need to contact the office by phone (01475 726034) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org as activities and schedules are subject to change, and some of them require booking in advance.
No prior gardening experience is needed and all equipment is provided. Our large beds are used for vegetable growing and are named after the high flats. Potatoes, onions, brussels sprouts, leeks and fruit bushes are harvested regularly.A series of honeycomb shaped raised beds contain a variety of herbs, flowers and fruit trees, all which need to be maintained and harvested.
Belville Community garden bike cafe is run by a team of certificed bike mechanics, with cycles available to members of the community once they have passed our check and repair process to make them ready to ride.
Monday sessions are for people under 21 years old and Wednesday sessions are for people over 21 years old.
Anyone interested in receiving a bike can contact our office.
