Okehampton Community Garden is a fully constituted not-for-profit organisation. They have a hard working and dedicated committee and a core of volunteers that maintain the garden. The community garden is open to everyone in the Okehampton area who is interested in growing their own food. One of their aims is to help reduce social isolation and loneliness. They hold regular well-being sessions, social evenings around a small fire, drumming circles, as well as children’s activity sessions and events.
They have been awarded a grant for ‘Storytelling in the Garden’.
Speaking about their Annual Fund grant, Okehampton Community Garden said:
“2022 is our 10 year anniversary, having this funding will enable us to bring a new dimension to what we offer and will be the starting point for workshop participants on a longer journey into becoming storytellers.”
