Contact - Mike Tomkin
Resulting from the KCG sustainability green ideas competition last year, considerable interest was expressed in a Kingsdown Community garden. our first task was to identify a suitable site which we think we have achieved on Victoria Road. Mike Tomkin has been in discussion with the trustees who welcome the use of some part or all of the site if we can put together a scheme to use it as some form of community garden in a way that retains the rustic nature of it. They particularly like the idea of a conservation group using it as this fits well with the original objectives when the land was first purchased – some parts are privately owned, some by the PC.
Before committing to the site we have to create, from the community, a dedicated team who will put forward a proposal for the garden, seek finance and maintain the site in the long term.
