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

Fox’s Field contains a 1 1/2 acre new forest garden which had the canopy trees planted in the winter 2021-22.

This session will either be continuing to mulch the new 450sqm herb area of the forest garden with compost if it wasn’t completed on Saturday, or will be looking after the trees and shrubs already planted, perhaps doing some weeding around the trees or watering if it’s been dry.

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
