On Tuesday 12 April 2016 from Midday to 2.00 pm everyone is welcome to enjoy refreshments, garden tours, freshly harvested vegetables, see the clay oven in action, take home plants available for donations and an opportunity to meet the committed volunteers that have made this garden such a wonderful free place to visit in Whitstable for the last 5 years.
Rebecca Booth, Canterbury City Council said “Stream Walk Community Garden is the first of its kind in Canterbury District and is a great model for other communities to follow to demonstrate healthy eating and healthy living at a very low cost”.
The garden has developed from a small allotment site which was underused by local residents to a thriving community garden for all ages and abilities to enjoy. The volunteers have worked together with local charities and funders to provide a pond, green house, poly tunnel, compost toilet, outdoor classroom, tree bank and chemical free fruit and vegetables all year round.
Mirelle Frost, Director of KET said “the garden is an amazing success story demonstrating how the community can pull together with ideas, time and fundraising to develop such a beautiful space providing food and training for unemployed beneficiaries.”
No need to book, just come along and enjoy the garden. Donations towards the charity gratefully received.
