Support for Community Garden Development
We are delighted to be supporting the development of a new and exciting community garden project. The project, being led by the Aldingbourne Trust, aims to enable the community to design, create and maintain an outdoor space at Bognor Regis Community Library that is accessible by everyone in the local community.
The project will transform a currently undersused and neglected area of land attached to the library. With the supprot of the local community, this will be developed to include a range of different areas, such as a children's reading zone, a sensory garden, a vegetable plot and a social space for people to come together.
As well as the physical transformation the project will promote community connections by bringing people together through gardening; promote inter-generational learning by giving opportunities for old and young people to learn gardening from each other; and support people disadvantaged by disability, illness or alchohol/drug dependency to learn new skills and build confidence by facilitation opportunties for them to volunteer.
We are very excited to see this great project grow and flourish!
