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.
