Pete Clee, project founder, stated that “We were overjoyed to receive the RHS award for ‘Best in the Southwest’ last year so it is now great to see that we are getting national recognition for our work. Our success mirrors many other new community garden projects across the country.”

The Gardens' work with children has expanded with a new and successful after school club running on a Tuesday and further ‘Golden Adventure Day’ holiday clubs are planned in the Summer Holidays.

The ‘Bishopston Bale House’ the garden’s on site strawbale eco building, is available to hire for community groups, meetings and workshops. The garden is open to the public and volunteers on Wednesdays 104.
