The Good Life Garden Group is looking for keen gardeners, so if that’s you then come and get involved with this fantastic community project by doing an activity you love!

We welcome keen, enthusiastic and committed individuals to be part of our team, to help develop the Good Life Garden and assist with our projects.

We offer our activities as part of the Birchmere Community Hub for use by the local community, including regular visits by local schools and have other plans to use surrounding spaces for community events and projects.  This is an exciting time for the right volunteers, as they can get involved in all aspects of running a welcoming space for all the community to use.  This is a fantastic resource for the community, bringing much needed services into the neighbourhood.

The garden itself is open every Thursday from 10am – 4pm.  Dates for meetings and activities are arranged in advance.

What skills do I need?

No previous skills needed for gardening.  Just come along and join in.  All welcome.
