Westfield Community Garden

garden with path
Funded by the 2021 Growing Grant

Location - At the heart of the Westfield Estate, next to the Co-op, in the North East quarter of Yeovil.
What do they do? Following an initial grant from the MHCLG at the end of 2019, Westfield Community Association has been preparing a derelict piece of land in readiness for creation of a Community Garden, made up of six zones, one of which is an allotment area. There will be raised allotment beds for growing fruit and vegetables, which will be shared with the community.
When do they meet? The pandemic has restricted planning meetings to monthly zooms, with work ongoing from home bases, but once the rules permit, volunteers will be very welcome to support the garden in many different ways, at any time.
Who can join? All ages, backgrounds and interests are encouraged to volunteer in ways which will enhance both the garden and their own wellbeing. Volunteers, school, youth groups, those with additional support needs, and senior home residents will also be part of maintaining the garden, including raised bed 'allotments', flower fruit and wildlife areas. Local residents can access the garden at any time.
Is there wheelchair access? Yes (once the garden is open, later this summer).
