MENDIP COMMUNITY GARDEN

STRF, South Essex Homes, and Southend City Gardens and Design have been working with ATF on an ATF led project in what was known as The Mendip Wildlife Gardens. The aim of the project is to encourage community spirit within the Mendip area and to provide an area where residents, schools, and local community organisations will both be able to learn about wildlife and sustainability and have an area they can use to plant their own plants and vegetables as well as having a quiet and calming environment to relax in. To see the work that has already been completed please follow this link to watch a short video and learn about the plans for the newly renamed Mendip Community Garden in the future.
