Scotswood Natural Community Garden was established in 1995 on the site of a school playing field. It’s forest gardens are some of the oldest in the country and provide a range of fruits, nuts and other food. The garden is recognised as a Land Project by the Permaculture Association, which means it is part of a network of community gardens that share expertise and encourage partnership working. They offer training and education in growing and forest schooling, and run youth groups that include issue-based and information sessions to help young people keep safe and healthy. Anyone can visit or become a member, and during harvest time visitors can pick their own bag of apples or plums. Herbs, cobnuts, artists charcoal & honey are just a few examples of seasonal produce available during the year.

What we love about them:

Nourishing the community, empowering people to grow and connecting people with nature!

We had such a great time on the first day of our Level 1 Forest School training course with parents @WDPrimarySchool, in the schools amazing forest school area. Such a fantastic, creative group of learners, with bags of ethusiasm. Cant wait for day 2 tomorrow!
How AMAZING is this dance by the UFO's and Ballet Lorent? Such a powerful piece about being unique, the limits of the current education system, ADHD and neurodiversity (with the garden providing a suitably radiant backdrop to these superstars).
Grants available for schools to get training and equipment for outdoor learning/forest schools
