Community Horticulture

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
