What We Do

Long Eaton Community Garden is a community group run by local volunteers from many different backgrounds.

 

We are united in building a beautiful garden space together, with help and support from the local community.

 

The Garden is here to facilitate connection within the Long Eaton community, through the regular sessions we run, the community events we put on, or providing a venue for local groups to learn more about gardening, and food production. Scroll down for more info on our Mission, Our Vision and Our History.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
