Vicky’s Veggie Growing Project

People are welcome to join the group for an opportunity to be involved in learning about and growing vegetables, fruits and flowers right in the middle of Victoria Park!

The group have been given their very own area of the park and from now on are exercising their green fingers to spruce up the area as they see fit and turn it into a new green space, growing flowers, herbs, vegetables and whatever takes their fancy.

The group meet on Sunday and Thursday afternoons at the Whitening Yard (adjacent to the model boating lake).
