Edingley Square Community Garden

Hidden away, close to the prison…..

Established in 2014 as part of a local tenants and residents group. The space was overgrown and unused but had been a garden for residents in the past. As this had been vandalised in the past most of the new gardeners were keen to keep the garden locked. The plots were laid out and covered with black plastic to reduce the very long grass. Funds from the Transition Sherwood garden share project granted by the neighbourhood team of the City Council were used to buy fruit trees and soft fruit. The Woodland Trust  supplied native hedgerow plants which were planted by Remedi the restorative justice team who also helped to dig the pond.


Some lovely flowers and grasses on a gently sloping site. We have maintained areas of long grass amongst the plots to keep some of the wildflowers like common vetch and to provide a habitat for moths and butterflies

Willow and Wildlife

We have individual plots and shared spaces with soft fruit, fruit trees, willow beds, herbs and jerusalem artichokes
