The Stonehill Community Garden welcomes people from all walks of life to get involved. We are currently working on half an acre producing fruit, vegetables and eggs from our hens. There are opportunities for groups or individuals to get involved and learn about:
Our aim is to bring people closer to nature and to share the joys of being outside and gardening together.
When/where we meet
We meet every Wednesday 10-4 pm
The community garden welcomes everyone! It is suitable for a diverse range of people; currently we host people with learning difficulties, vulnerable adults, young people and children (with guardians) and people who just enjoy gardening and being with others. The purpose of the community garden is to bring people of all different backgrounds, abilities and walks of life together, rather than having one specific target group.
Children and vulnerable adults must come with their carers of guardians. We have a Child Safeguarding Policy which we are currently in the process of updating.
How to get to us
The Community Garden is very accessible from Abingdon and Drayton and it is possible to get the X2 bus to Morland Gardens. It is a 5-8 minute walk from that bus stop.
We are located down Stonehill Lane/Oday Hill at the same turning as the Stonehill Riding School off the Drayton Road (first left after leaving south of Abingdon). On Wednesdays we have a sign up for the community garden entrance which is on the left.
It is a 20 minute cycle from Abingdon centre.
