Things to Do

Volunteer at the Garden

Every other Sunday morning the Forest Garden community group meet to volunteer their time in developing and maintaining the green space. Anyone is welcome to attend and volunteer at the garden. For the latest information you can check the Forest Garden Facebook group.

Plant or Pick Fruit and Veg

A big focus of the Seacroft Forest Garden is the process of planting (and picking!) from the canopy of fruit trees and perennial vegetable grows. You can help maintain and nurture this source of food by contributing to the growing process. Eventually, the garden will be a place that the community can pick their own fresh fruit and vegetables.

Take a Break

When you aren’t getting your hands dirty with the fruit and veg, the garden green space is there to be enjoyed on your own or with others. The shade from the trees is a great place to park up and enjoy the peace and sense of community that will come from the garden.
