The Global Garden is a community based gardening project within Lincoln’s Sincil Bank neighbourhood. This area of the city is very culturally diverse with over 23 languages being spoken in the local primary schools.
The Global Garden Project, which is funded by the People’s Health Trust by money raised through the Health lottery, celebrates cultural diversity by bringing local residents together to grow an international assortment of fruit, vegetables and flowers. It also helps residents make positive differences to their local environment and strengthen their local community. There are a number of weekly sessions led around the neighbourhood including:
A Community Allotment Gardening Group – Tuesdays 10.30am to 1pm and some Saturdays at Plot 1A, Sincil Bank Allotments.
Sincil Bank Community Allotment – A Community led Gardening Group open to residents from the Sincil Bank Area of Lincoln. The group meets every Tuesday from 10.30am to 1pm and some Saturdays at Plot 1A, Sincil Bank Allotments. For further information contact Lizzie.
A Family ‘after school’ gardening Club – Thursdays 3.30pm to 4.30pm at The Central Children’s Centre, St Andrews Close
‘Pop Up’ street gardening sessions at various locations around the neighbourhood.
Other events and activities include an annual ‘Global Harvest Festival Event’, “sociable Saturday meet up and Eat up” BBQ sessions and recipe swapping. All sessions are free and open to all residents of Sincil Bank. For more information, contact Lizzie.
This project was set up with funding from the People’s Health Trust.
