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!

What a lovely time we had with Year 1 and Year 4 from @RainbirdPrimary last week. Year 1 learnt about parts of a plant; and Year 4 explored states of matter. They also enjoyed some lovely play time in the woods. With thanks to our funders The Henry Smith Charity https://t.co/bXT4Nj7cSt
