Potterne Community Garden

YFC Parish Youth Worker Steve Dewar started the initiative back in 2013 supported by a few local residents, agreement from Aster Housing and some input from Wiltshire Wildlife.  Its been a challenging journey and we have seen some improvement but the potential to achieve more is great.

The project aims are to see transformation of a misused area into a haven and resource for local residents and the wider community. It allows local people of all ages to take pride in their local area and to see it flourish. The growing and harvest of produce and enhancment of the natural environment is the resposibility of the residents, who in turn are able to reap the fruits of their hard work and commitment. We are also incorporating the area around the Potterne youth centre. 

It's not my garden...it's not your garden...its ours. Anyone is able to help and get involved. Community spirit, respect and enjoyment is the key. It is only by giving our ourselves through our time/gifts/talents and working together that we see the benifit for the wider community.

Sow a seed with faith with hope and see what happens
