Community Gardens

The health benefits of having access to ‘green spaces’ became very important during, and after, the global pandemic.

Gardens and open spaces to grow plants (for fresh, cheaper, food) and to add colour into our lives, have become specially important to families and single people.

However, too many homes have no garden, or even a balcony. The solution is have a near-by local community garden.

The benefits for personal health; sharing skills; and building successful local community groups, are well known.

The problem is often; Where to start?

Usually by:

  1. Finding the unused land.
  2. Identifying the land owner.
  3. Finding local support to create and maintain the community garden.

Negotiations can then start.

The Birkenhead & Tranmere Community Benefit Society may be able to help. The community garden projects in Birkenhead and Tranmere (and nearby) we currently know about are shown below.

If you know of any others, please let us know using the form below.  We would love to promote them.
