The Triangle Garden is a community garden within a local park where people of all ages and abilities can come together and take part in creative land-based activities, such as growing food, tending plants, creating wildlife habitats and making permanent garden features.
The Garden is a part of a national network of permaculture demonstration projects and seeks to reconnect people with the natural world.
We run community gardening activities open to all, once a month on weekends, and community events, workshops, walks and talks throughout the year. Our weekly Friday Garden Club actively gardens the Triangle Garden and we welcome new volunteers.
Our Growing Ability project, for people with additional support needs, provides social therapeutic horticulture, work experience, skills training and active healthy living support.
Our New Shoots project provides a six week block of weekly horticultural therapy sessions for people struggling with depression, stress and anxiety based around the five ways to wellbeing – connection, mindfulness, learning, giving and being active.
We also run two forest school activity sessions for families with children aged 3-12 and 12-16.
We welcome help from volunteers at any of our activities. Please contact us if you’re interested.
