The Secret Garden Group are inviting the public to attend a gardening Action Day at their Secret Garden behind St Leonard’s Church on New Church Road, Hove on Tuesday, June 18 from 11am.

The purpose of the day is to introduce local residents to the group, which is turning an overgrown church ground into a community allotment for everyones enjoyment.

A large chunk of the Secret Garden has already been cleared with help from Harvest, the Brighton & Hove Food Organisation, the West Hove Forum and landscape gardener Oliver Borrow, and while beetroot, carrots, cabbages, runner beans, leeks and tomatoes are being grown there is still much more to be done.

Joi Jones, Secret Garden Group Secretary, said:

“We can’t wait to meet fellow keen gardeners on the day, or anybody who just wants to see what we have been up to over the past few months. Just pop in for a few minutes or a few hours. We’ll be here, digging away.”

The Secret Garden will comprise of a pond for wildlife, a barbecue area, benches for outdoor meetings, willow structures and many other features for children to enjoy. The eventual layout will be based around an existing memorial bench.
