Goscote Greenacres

GoscoteGreenachresFinally got around to visiting Goscote Greenacres community garden today after planning to go since I heard about it opening a few months ago! Goscote Greenacres provides opportunities for people with disabilities who use the onsite centre as well as for residents, community groups and schools in the Goscote area of Walsall. It offers growing opportunities as well as education in food production and the natural environment. The site has 48 gardening plots, poly tunnels, a shop selling local produce, putting green, wildflower meadow, woodland walk and soon to include fishing
platform and canal side walk along the Wyrley and Essington canal. It’s a great place and and I bought some freshly picked veg (picked before my very eyes in fact!) The bunch of kale, rainbow chard, red pepper, a mix of chillis and garlic bulb cost a bargain total of £1.80. Cheap, avoiding the supermarkets and pesticides, and supporting a fantastic local scheme. I love it.
