The Sumac garden has been turned into mini community allotments! The vegetable beds are divided up in to small plots. Individuals and groups can request this space to grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for local wildlife.

Local food production is an important part of a low carbon society. We want to encourage, support and learn about food growing in Forest Fields. The Sumac garden is organic and laid out to show the best use of a small space. It is full of ideas you could use to grow your own.

There are still mini garden plots available in the Sumac garden for groups or individuals to grow their own fruit and vegetables. People are welcome to take on a space to grow over Winter veg or express an interest for next Spring!

If you are keen to get involved join us on Wednesday afternoons, or just pitch in on your own initiative.
