Hello all

As a Tenters resident I have admired your garden for some time - it's a most welcome feature of the area. Myself and my wife are opening a new coffee shop just up the road at the corner of SCR and Washington Street. We're committed to recycling as much waste as possible and, as part of this, have been interested by the "Grounds for your Garden" initiative.

We will - hopefully - have a lot of used coffee grounds and we will gladly give these away free to anyone who thinks that they would be beneficial to their gardens

We hope to open in 2 weeks(ish) so just pop along and ask us if you think this would be of use to you

South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project

The South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project started in April 2007. We have a derelict site on loan from ST Salvage Company that we have converted into a community food garden. This is a continuation of the initial successful Dolphins Barn Community squatted food garden that was on the canal from 2005 -2007.
