St Peter’s Community Garden Project

St Peter’s Community Garden project is creating gardens for use by people in the church and the community, on the old church school playground behind the church, on Barber Street.

The gardens have been supported by Cheshire East council to set up a polytunnel, potting shed and raised beds and the gardens have been worked by church members and helpers from Rossendale, and have already been the scene of growing events and barbeques.

This year’s crops are already growing well and the latest arrival is a beehive

The growing area is part of a bigger project, as we have now received a grant from the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme to enable us to develop more of the church grounds as a community space. We welcome ideas and comments on our plans for this, which include a memory garden, an orchard growing old Cheshire varieties and a walkway linking these and the growing area.
