Have you ever thought about developing a patch of land to create a garden which the community can enjoy? Our Community Horticulture project is doing just that!
Mayfield Nurseries and Southampton City Council are working in partnerships to make a positive difference to the outdoor spaces and improve the wellbeing of residents living on council estates in Southampton. This project is supporting residents to create new gardens and communal areas, to learn new skills and to develop the confidence needed to continue their projects.
Community Gardening has been shown to:
Improve the mental and physical wellbeing of participants
Increase community networks
Reduce social isolation
Improve Confidence and Self Esteem
Improve skills and skill sharing,
We will need the involvement of individuals and community groups to help turn Southampton into a city that grows!. If you would like to get involved, please contact
