Global Gardens Project

Global Gardens Project

This project is back up and running, with COVID precautions in place. 

The Global Gardens Project is about coming together to celebrate ecological and cultural diversity.

We have an allotment site where we are cultivating an organic kitchen garden, celebrating crops from around the world.

The crops grown are (in non-COVID times) used in our monthly community suppers at the Embassy café, Cathays Community Centre and for other community-shared meals on the last Tuesday of every month.

Global Gardens work with the Trinity Centre, a space that provides support and outreach for refugees and asylum seekers. Through the shared activities of gardening, cooking and eating and the aim is to enable inter-cultural understanding and support community integration, health and well-being.

Our student sessions are held on Saturday mornings, from 11am -1pm. We usually do around an hour and a half of gardening, then have a well-earned sit down, cuppa and slice of cake. Please bring your own flasks/mugs (we'll provide the hot water and teabags) and feel free to bring a cake to share if you're a keen baker!

We are looking to recruit a group of regular volunteers who will be able to get to know the gardens and the other volunteers, to get a proper little community going! If you're interested in finding out more about the gardens (with no obligation to sign up to be a regular volunteer if you don't want to!), please come along to one of our regular Saturday sessions to see what we're about - there's no obligation to stay for the full 2 hours if you don't want to!

DIRECTIONS TO THE GARDEN: Get yourself to Whichurch Road and walk in the direction of Gabalfa Roundabout. Turn right down Curll Avenue, then turn left at the bottom of the avenue. You'll now be walking along the side of the gardens. Take the next right and you'll come across a big sign on the fence saying 'Global Gardens'. Just beyond it is the gate to the gardens where we'l be waiting to greet you!
