Name: St Stephen’s Well Community Garden

Established: 2013

Garden bio: “just a few metres from a busy junction in inner-city Kirkstall, Leeds, our community garden is a quiet haven from the stresses of modern life. Our growing space is in a public garden where people come to relax, socialise and grow. We have raised beds with vegetables as well as fruit trees and bushes. There are flowers galore to attract bees and insects. It’s run by a small group of faithful volunteers and used by local residents and primary school. Diggers and non-diggers welcome!”



Activity: join us in the garden for a relaxing moment creating wildflower seed balls. The seed balls create a mini ecosystem for the seeds, protecting them from birds, bugs and slugs. Simple and fun to make, and easy to just scatter in your garden!

Suitable for children: yes, children must be accompanied by an adult.

Cost: FREE/ small donation
