St Michael's is an Eco Church

Land

After much hard and loving work the church garden is beginning to flourish and become a welcoming and contemplative place.

The garden is once again a popular place for local workers to have lunch.

Calling all folk who enjoy the church garden

We have split the garden into 20 plots. See the notice board at the back of the church.

Please choose and sign up for the plot that you would like to look after.

Some suitable for children and some larger ones representing a bit of a challenge!

Happy weeding!

Here are some photos of the work that's been completed.

Garden Benches
Several trees have been planted.
Garden North side
The north side of the church is cleared awaiting planting.
Garden Logpile
A log pile will be sited to encourage wildlife and a Bug hotel to be constructed - here we see the materials.
Garden Memorial
The Memorial garden will get a facelift.
