Potager Garden

Community Engagement Feasibility Study

Lead Organisation: Potager Garden CIC

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded: £8360.00         

Location: Constantine

Potager Garden, a former tree and shrub nursery situated in Constantine, had been left abandoned and overgrown for a decade until a group of dedicated individuals and volunteers transformed it into a community space. For the past 20 years, the garden has been brought back to life and become a place of collaborative work and learning. By offering access to the natural environment, Potager Gardens provides individuals with a range of valuable skills, including gardening, landscaping, tool maintenance, healthy cooking, garden design, and arts and crafts.

Acknowledging the diverse interests and needs of the community, Potager Garden is now embarking on a journey to broaden its impact and reach by looking to expand its programmes and services.

The Community Capacity grant will be used to fund a comprehensive feasibility study, which will involve conducting thorough research and analysis to evaluate the project’s potential and viability, playing a pivotal role in identifying stakeholders and understanding how they can effectively meet the local needs. This will aid in developing a sustainable funding strategy for the project, ensuring its long-term sustainability and also explore methods to measure the social return on investment.

Through actively involving the community, Potager Garden aims to truly understand their needs and desires, using a collaborative environment where the final project is created together. Through this inclusive process, Potager Garden will look to tailor specialised workshops and programmes to cater to the unique requirements of different groups within the community, guaranteeing that each individual’s needs are taken into consideration and met effectively.

By incorporating activities that promote well-being, skill development, and social inclusion, Potager Garden aims to serve as a driving force for positive change, directly addressing the demands of the community it is committed to serving.
