    Grow your own food and make new friends at our lovely garden opposite Holloway Hall Community Centre. We meet at Ley Hill every Monday to do some gentle gardening work and sow, grow, and enjoy tasty fresh produce. There are numerous fruit shrubs here which leads to some tasty jams and deserts in the late summer. Our sites have raised beds which are accessible and manageable. We also have a number of benches within the garden where you can enjoy your brew and listen to bird song.
