The new growing season is upon us and we are looking for keen volunteers to help the team at the community garden in St Leonards Warrior Square train station. The garden has raised beds for vegetables and lots of fruit tress and bushes where we are growing food that the public can help themselves to. […]
The community garden at St Leonards Warrior Square, started in January 2016, is our first growing project in the area. We’re very excited to be transforming the environment around the station and getting local residents working and growing together.
Landscape architect and artist Julia Hilton created a garden design and we have received generous support from the following:
- Keepers Nursery
- Littlewoods Fencing
- Gardenscape Direct Ltd
- Bohemia Walled Garden
- Alexandra Park Greenhouse Group
- Alpha Cafe, St. Leonards-On-Sea
- Ken Davis
- Francoise Cooper
- Pea Pod Veg
- Trinity Wholefoods
- Chris Dodwell
- Leigh Dyer
