Wish Park Community Garden
The Wish Park Community Garden started in spring 2010 by a small group of local residents. The garden now has a small orchard, pond and several raised veg beds. It is also a registered community compost site.
The Wish Park Community Vegetable Garden aim to provide a readily visible public area for growing food; encouraging people to acquire knowledge and skills in growing produce for themselves; helping children participate in and learn about the food cycle; providing opportunities for people of all ages, including those with mobility difficulties, to be able to readily access the garden and the raised beds; composting green waste and re-using it in the garden; enabling people in the community to enjoy locally grown fresh produce; providing a way of having exercise outdoors; enabling people to meet in a friendly welcoming environment.
This successful project is run entirely by volunteers. A wide range of people of all ages go along to help out and produce is shared among those who work in the garden. There is also a pond which has had tadpoles and provides an additional habitat for wildlife, a community apple and plum orchard, created with the help of Brighton Permaculture, and Wish Hills, a raised area planted with wildflowers to attract bees and butterflies.
