Grant to Petersfield Garden

Petersfield Community Garden has received a £494 Bringing Communities Back Together grant from the Asda Foundation.

The garden is a space for people to enjoy being outdoors, whether that’s to garden, socialise, express themselves creatively or to sit in quiet contemplation. It welcomes groups and clubs that wish to make use of their community space, and runs events throughout the year including wassailing, picnics and bonfires. 

The grant will enable them to replace some of the damaged equipment and also buy a bird feeder station. I was treated to a tour of the community garden - it really is a beautiful place with seasonal fruit and vegetable beds, an orchard, pond and wildflower meadow. I’m looking forward to visiting again very soon.
