This project is running this year, but will be subject to covid operating procedures.
The Global Gardens Project is about coming together to celebrate ecological and cultural diversity.
They have an allotment site where we are cultivating an organic kitchen garden, celebrating crops from around the world.
The crops grown are 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.
Sessions are held on Saturday mornings. You will need to book on to a session prior to Volunteering. To book please sign up to the Global Gardens project and buy a free ticket on the events on this page. The allotment is located just off Whitchurch road. If you require a bus to get there, please keep your bus tickets and Cardiff volunteering can reimburse you.
DO NOT turn up to any sessions that you have not booked on to and received a confirmation from either the lead volunteer or coordinator.
Places on sessions are limited to ensure maximum social distancing. Please wear face coverings where possible, sensible shoes, and clothes to garden in.
