Branch Street Community Gardens

  • Unloved and unused - the Branch Street site in September 2010 after a local group was unable to maintain the allotments

  • The challenge of reclaiming the site is clear...

  • Raised Beds almost buried under weeds...

  • Without volunteers the task would be impossible..

  • Clearing old carpets from allotment pathways Winter 2011

  • Making a start on pathways and preparing for the new season May 2011

  • Even in the depths of winter there is always something to do. January 2013

  • New fencing provides extra security and growing space.

  • Site for the planned greenhouses...

  • Two greenhouses finally constructed in Spring 2011

  • Raised beds now productive and cared for here by our regular Paddock volunteers

  • Constructing new planters with the Green for Go Group
