Our Gardens

Our garden sites have been developed by disabled people with diverse needs in mind and are used all year round. Anyone with an interest in being outdoors, meeting new people and trying something new can get involved. People with limited mobility, specific learning needs, disabilities or mental health issues can be supported through the use of adapted tools, techniques and friendly staff teams. We’re equipped with onsite classrooms and facilities to deliver active outdoor learning experiences for all ages and abilities and regularly welcome schools and community groups. 

 

Salop Drive Market Garden

Salop Drive Market Garden near Bristnall, Oldbury, is a three acre working market garden and local food project. People of all ages and abilities can get involved and learn about where food comes from and experience a ‘real-life’ working site which supplies bags of freshly grown vegetables to local households. It has a greenhouse, polytunnels, outdoor growing beds, toilets and handwashing facilities, classroom, off road parking, allotment plots, healing and decorative gardens and wildlife area.

 

 

Malthouse Garden

Malthouse Garden is a third of an acre therapeutic garden in Smethwick. It has a classroom, fully equipped kitchen, decorative flower gardens, vegetable beds, off road parking, toilets and handwashing facilities, wildlife garden and large covered greenhouse space for garden activities and meetings.

 

Barlow Road

Adjacent to Junction 9 of the M6 motorway, we are creating a new community garden at Barlow Road from derelict land, developing our environmentally beneficial food production, and increasing meaningful health, wellbeing and employability activities.

Funding from Power to Change is being used to accelerate the development of this site. Read more about our plans to develop this site.
