6 years ago the gardens were created on an old derelict playground with funding from Tidy Town Wales. 27 Gardens were created including 2 raised beds for the physically handicapped. Many local residents, young and old, grow a variety of vegetables, fruit and flowers. In season excess is donated weekly to the local Food Bank. We share 3 Greenhouses, 2 sheds and a communal area for activities.
This garden opens as part of Dinas Powys on Saturday 14, Sunday 15 July.
The gardens were designed for wheelchair access. The pathways throughout the site are flat and wide enough to facilitate the use of wheelchairs.
