Do you have any spare plants?
If you're tidying your garden and come across any surplus edibles, please bear us in mind. We would be grateful for any herbs, perennial vegetables, or fruit trees or bushes, you can spare. They can be left any time by the compost bins at the garden.
With many thanks.

Come and join us at the Community Garden on the second Sunday of the month 10am-12. We're on the right hand side just inside the entrance to the car park, in Duckmore Lane.

We are developing the site using
permaculture and no dig principles. It will be low maintenance, wildlife and child friendly.

Please see our Risk assessment for further information.

Things to bring, gardening gloves, hot/cold drink. Generally we will be using, forks, spades, hand tools so if you bring a couple of tools from this list that's great. However, we do have some spares at the site.

We have a coffee break at 11am and we ring a bell to let people know, it's a good time to come and join us for a chat.

Old gardening tools

If you have any old spare gardening tools, we would be very grateful for them. You can leave them in the porch at Green Meadows, Longfield Road, HP23 4DF - many thanks.

So far:

A vegetable plot has been added.

More trees and fruit bushes.

Raspberry canes planted.

Wood chip has been spread on the social area. 

Three raised beds have been constructed.

Wildflowers have been planted around the perimeter of the social area.

Clover is being used as a green manure in the forest garden area. This will improve the soil and act as a weed suppressant.

We are planting a row of Spanish comfrey along the line of the Duckmore Lane hedge as a barrier to weeds from the hedgerow. 

We have built a potting table, tool store, compost bin.

Planted fruit trees and fruit bushes.

Held activity sessions for Beavers and Cubs.

Duckmore Lane allotments Community Garden

Tring in Transition are working with Tring Allotments Association, Tring Town Council and Tring Together to create a Community Garden. This is being formed immediately to the right of the entrance gate.

We are developing the site using permaculture and no dig principles. It will be low maintenance and child friendly.

The basic plan is to have two areas.

The area nearest the gate would be for socialising, e.g. for the summer barbeque, enabling exchange of ideas, plants and produce. They will mainly grow annual vegetables. The raised beds are high enough to be used as seating and also to enable access for wheel chair users.

The area further in would become a forest garden, with a variety of short fruit trees, fruit bushes, herbs and other creeping edible plants.

If you would like to become involved with the project in any way, or have any helpful tips we would love to hear from you! Please contact us at
