The Craven Arms Community Garden was developed in 2000 with funding from the National Lottery and the Millennium Commission under the auspices of Grow Cook Share – now Grow Cook Learn.
Over time the Craven Arms Community Garden (CACG) has been made more sustainable and environmentally-friendly with the addition of composting facilities, rainwater catchment and a shelter.
During April 2015 further composting and rainwater catchment has been added in readiness for the installation of poly-tunnels.
The CACG comprises some 60 micro-allotments which are currently gardened by some 30 gardeners with many gardeners tending more than one plot. These plots are available to members of the local community for an annual rent of £2.50 per plot accompanied by a commitment to attend monthly Tidy Days on the first Saturday of each month for 2 hours contribution to maintenance of the communal areas.
We hold regular events throughout the year, including:
- Seedy Saturdays, Craven Arms Farmers Market
- Members Cob Oven Lunch, Onny Meadows
