The gardens are very popular with local residents and there is currently a waiting list to take part, but if you're interested in joining then the coming Open Day is a great opportunity to have a look around.

This sort of sharing and re-using is becoming increasingly popular, with events like Pia's Free Plant Swap Meet becoming popular.
