The garden site came about when the developers built the retail stores which now house McDonalds, Dreams and Lidl stores.
The site was given back to the community under a grant called "Section 106" and has been in existence since 1996. The site was developed over the years by members of the Battle GLOBE group and local residents. They built a pond and started the site with shrubs and laying of the vegetable plots. There was a lot of hard work and dedication over the years, and this has built the garden into what it is today.
The newly formed constitution of "Friends of Oxford Road Community Garden" which still remains within the group called GLOBE as part of the alliance TREGA, hope to continue this hard work.
We as members all wish to se the Community Garden thrive and be a focal point for all of our beneficiaries.
Please feel free to make suggestions when you come to the regular meetings as a member or as a visitor, and make a contribution towards the group.
