Our new wellness garden -
Force of Nature!

FON garden 1.jpg
Overview 

We are going to transform an unused piece of land at Weeton Barracks into a community wellness garden. This is a growing site open to the community, specifically soldiers and their families as well as the wider community. It will be a safe space for people to come and enjoy the outdoors and grow fruits and vegetables with help and guidance, making it suitable for a complete beginner. 

We would like to host sessions such as mens only groups, family groups, toddler groups as well as it being open as a community growing space for people to enjoy anytime they need some head space. 

As well as growing the food we would like to cook the food too, on a fire in an outdoor kitchen. 

Vision 

Our vision is to connect as many people as possible with nature, to instil a love of nature from an early age and get people outdoors. 

With this project we want to encourage the food to fork movement and break down any barriers for people to grow their own. We also see it as a way to help with the cost of living crisis. 

By working on Weeton Barracks, we see this as a great opportunity to benefit the community and compliment existing work already taking place in the small community garden. 

Who is helping the dream come true? 

Firstly we have AWS to thanks for helping us get a step in the right directions. Then we have The Armed Forces Covenant Fund helping us off the mark  with an amazing  three year fund supporting soldiers and families. Soon to be Joined by the Lancashire Environmental fund adding to the family and environmental elements of the garden. 

We have also been lucky to receive some disability funding to help everyone access the garden. Finally the general public and businesses for donating wood chips, pots and their time!
