Kent Enterprise Trust and Transition Town Whitstable have worked together for over 5 years to provide a wonderful resource for the whole community. Visitors and volunteers at the garden can enjoy the pond, well, green house, poly tunnel, compost toilet, outdoor classroom, tree bank, tea shed, workshop, chemical free fruit and several raised beds for growing vegetables all year round for the community
Robert Jones, Councillor for Herne and Broomfield said “We had a great time at the stream walk allotment gardens seeing what has evolved there and all what is being achieved is fantastic, so well done to you all with this; I thought the clay oven was Excellent and so were the pizza!”
Mark Quinn, Chair of KET said “The garden is a wonderful asset demonstrating how a community can pull together with ideas, time and skills to make a peaceful space for the benefit of everyone.”
Becky Richards, Chair of TTW said “Whitstable is proud to have such a beautiful garden that is accessible and free for all to use. We will be celebrating 5 years at Stream Walk on Saturday May 21st as another opportunity for local people and organisations to see the garden”.
Laura Ribbons, Kent University Student said “The garden was looking fantastic and it was really nice to see a few familiar faces - after a stressful term it reminded me how much I am looking forward to being back in the garden.”
Local CICs such as Beach Creative and Cycle Recycle from Herne Bay joined in the event with outdoor workshops for the community.
