THE FRESH HOPE
GARDEN PROJECT

Untitled design(4).png

Project Grow are teaming up with Cheltenham Community Flowers at the Community Rest Garden (CRG) taking over the existing community garden's growing space.  The aim is to grow vegetables, herbs and cut flowers for the Fresh Hope Food Pantry as well as for the community of St Peters and St Pauls in Cheltenham.  We are working to prove the case for a more sustainable community food system growing chemical free plants and produce with low food miles (less than 0.1miles from garden to pantry) and all delivered with minimal packaging and waste.

We launched the project in March 2024 and will be posting monthly updates on the project below. To be involved please email us at hello@weareprojectgrow.com

SITE UPDATES 

We officially take over the growing space at the community garden next month (April) however we have been building the site since March. Here some photos of what the site looked like before work began.

The site build started by removing the dead hedge and the green grundon bins to make way for new raised and no dig beds.  We also installed a new packing and distribution shed to process the flowers, vegetables and herbs ready for the pantry.

APRIL

Our first official session began with the sorting out of our new sowing and potting greenhouse.  Over the years it had become a storage area so we sorted all the pots into a system, added staging and removed the stuff we no longer needed.  The area outside the greenhouse was leveled and we started to build the raised beds which will become filled and planted during this month.  We also picked our first chard and rhubarb as well as flowers from the garden to take over to The Fresh Hope Pantry.
