In the Spring of 2016 Whitefriars Housing Association offered Team Springboard a piece of derelict land in the middle of Coventry. The site had previously housed a Scout Hut but since that building was demolished the land had become overgrown and unloved. We took one look and immediately fell in love and Community Roots, our Community Garden & Growing Project was born! Although we are still developing the site we have already started growing and are working hard with volunteers and young people to bring it back to life. It's a wonderful place where everyone can have fun and learn to 'grow their own' in a sociable and supportive atmosphere.
The Community Garden is currently open every Wednesday between 10am and 2pm.
Let us know if you want to come over for a visit - everyone is welcome!
We run a programme of activities to engage with local people and support people to enjoy the fun of preparing and eating a healthier diet! There are always activities going on during the school holidays for families to enjoy together!
