A brand new space for people of all ages to enjoy is coming to Colchester.  The Newtown Community Garden will be in the heart of New Town in the Recreation Ground.

The design has been devised by local residents to include:

• Fruit growing, including orchards, nut trees and soft fruit
• Wildlife areas – including grasses, hedges, bug-hotel and pond
• Sensory planting
• Vegetable and herb growing spaces
• Social and learning spaces
• Space to prepare and share food
• Path and seating spaces – accessible to people with mobility problems

Want to get involved? The project, supported by Colchester Borough Council and BTCV,  requires volunteers. If you can help please  contact [email protected]
