Who are we?
Leatherhead Community Garden is a local organisation promoting and encouraging gardening using organic and environmentally sustainable methods within the Leatherhead area.
The Garden is a community development and grow your own initiative managed and developed by local people and supported by a range of partners from across the public, private and voluntary sectors.
The idea is to support residents and organisations from within the local community who wish to learn or take part in gardening collectively. There is also a great opportunity for people to mingle and get to know one another.
The project was launched in September 2009 on the Scout Hut site in Woodbridge Grove, Leatherhead. All sorts of members of the community came out to offer their time to support the project. Local businesses were encouraged to lend us a hand too! We worked hard and enjoyed the company and the fantastic atmosphere! Unfortunately this wasn't to last forever. Following two lots of sewage flooding on the site we were forced to close and search for a new site.
Thankfully West Hill School in Leatherhead were thinking about extending their horticulture provision for their students. The Garden met with the school and plans were put in place to get the construction of the new garden started. Our first meeting at the new site was on 5th February 2011 and we haven't looked back since! This new partnership is so valuable as we have gained new members and support.
