ASHTON COMMUNITY GARDEN (see map)

 

The Let's Grow Preston, Ashton Community Garden is a new site the we have been developing for a while now.

 

Until resently it was the site of two bowling greens, however due to city council cuts the council could no longer afford to maintain two greens.

 

We were offered the use of one of the greens to save it from falling into disrepair and since then we have been very busy trying to get the site off the ground and develop it as a publically accessable community environmental hub.

 

 

 

The Let's Grow Preston makes up part of what used to be the 'Walled Garden' of Ashton House. The rest of the site is also occupied by Dig in NW and AFG (The Armed Forces Group). Both of these groups do great work  supporting people from the military community who are stuggling to come to terms with their experience and/or stuggling to intergrate back into civilian life.

 

The 'community garden' on this site has been developed with the help of funding from the Lancashire Environmental Fund and over the next few years plan to see it develop into a beautiful garden that will will use for training, volunteer and growing stock plants.

 

The Let's Grow Preston: Ashton Community Garden is in a fantatsic location in the centre of Ashton Park, will be open to the public and we intend to make this site into a vibrant community hub and in a sence a 'shop window' for Lets Grow Preston
