In 2010 Alice Park Community Garden was a piece of wasteground hidden behind a tall hedge in a corner of Alice Park. Local resident and Transition Larkhall member Kathy Cook discovered it by accident while out walking her dog. Recognising its potential, she obtained permission from the Council to set up a garden on the land.

After six years of hard work, the garden now consists of raised vegetable beds, fruit trees, a circular social area with log seating, a wildlife pond, access path, wooden benches, a shed, a greenhouse, and our wonderful hand-built green oak shelter.

The garden is run on a voluntary basis by the Community Garden’s
Management Committee, part of Transition Larkhall. By sharing skills and
knowledge, and encouraging volunteers and visitors to grow their own fruit
and vegetables, Alice Park Community Garden gives local people the tools
for self-reliance. It models community resilience and food self-sufficency,
essential in today’s rapidly changing world.
The Community Garden is a social hub where local community members
can gather. It also raises funds to provide workshops for people within the
local community.
