Transition Town Wellington’s Community Gardening Sessions

TTW looks after a number of council owned public green spaces in Wellington, planting food baring trees, bushes and plants for the community, as well as improving the sites for wildlife and creating wildflower meadows. To find out more visit 

In this session we will be looking after the nut and fruit trees and bushes found onsite, and clearing back any brambles that are in the wrong place. A variety of gardening activities are available.

Everyone is welcome to the sessions, no need to book and no prior experience needed, all ages are welcome, but please can children under 18 be accompanied by an adult. Tools will be provided. Generally speaking, it’s always useful to wear gardening gloves and suitable shoes- wellies or walking boots are great, as these sessions are held in fields with uneven ground.

Any changes due to weather will be communicated via the website or Facebook. For more information email
