The Stacey Community Gardening Club
The Garden & Orchard:
We are fortunate to have a large community garden, complete with a small orchard, a sensory garden and a sheltered patio area. With the help of funding from Portsmouth City Council's 'Healthy Pompey' project in 2009, our garden evolved from a neglected and overgrown plot of land into the surprisingly tranquil and beautiful garden that it is today.
Currently, it is used regularly by our resident nursery, Baffins Nature Nursery, and utilised during our various fund raising workshops and Family Fun Days for gardening and rustic crafting projects and demonstrations and as a peaceful spot in which members of the community can simply sit and relax.
The Stacey Centre Community Garden
9.30am - 1pm
The garden and orchard are now managed by our community gardener with help from centre staff and our team of volunteers, with its upkeep and maintenance being entirely financed by our own fundraising activities.
To encourage the local and extended community to join together in a creative and productive ongoing project, we are always interested in voluntary support from keen experienced or inexperienced gardeners.
Similarly, our Gardening Club, which runs every Wednesday is an excellent place to begin supporting your local community centre. Everyone is made very welcome, we provide all necessary tools, gloves and complementary refreshments: all we need is your enthusiasm and time.
Please contact us if you would like to volunteer or join the Gardening Club.
