The Garden will re-open on Friday 1st March- all welcome
Greengage Community Garden is a constantly evolving living environment. It is cared for by a dedicated group of volunteers, and supported in an organic way with biodiversity at its core of every part of its growth and development.
Rich in species and in habitats, the garden offers structure and solace to many lifeforms as the seasons and the climates we live in change ever faster around us.
In the garden you can disconnect from everyday life.
Greengage is open to all.
We will always welcome new people to join us as we move forward.
Our dedicated volunteers who come to Greengage, come for a number of reasons. Some prefer to work outside on the plots, whilst others like being involved in the various jobs within the greenhouse, but we always work as a team.
Whether you have a skill, want to learn something new, we would love you to come along.
We welcome people with long term health problems or disabilities, and there is a whole range of very gentle work on offer.
We don't just grow wildflowers and vegetables, but hopefully we are all growing together.
A range of gardening activities, from seed sowing in the large greenhouse to cultivating the plots.
No experience needed - just come along and be welcomed.
We hope to develop a nursery for the propagation of trees, and to create an area for the pursuit of various crafts.
We are planning a new building on the site (subject to obtaining necessary permissions) for socialising and to enable the large greenhouse to be used for its primary purpose.
We hope that we will become an important resource for Swanage. A place where people can come and grow plants, do some general gardening and where you can do as much or as little as you want. We also provide horticultural advice.
Future ideas include helping people to grow their own food and linking up with local businesses and schools.
This is Ginny, one of our volunteers picking sweet peas to decorate the table ready for when the volunteers have their lunch.
Anyone can come into the garden and pick their own flowers or produce to take home, leaving a donation if you can.
