Wimborne Community Garden calendar growing funds for group

VOLUNTEERS at a community garden project have produced a calendar to help fund their efforts – and two other town causes.

Wimborne Community Garden, in School Lane, has been running for 15 months growing fruit, vegetables and flowers through the efforts of residents.

A share of produce grown at the site is handed to Wimborne Foodbank and Community Kitchen.

Among them is Sarah Pizzey, who has put her photography skills to good use for the cause.

Sarah has put together photographs taken at the garden over the last 15 months to form a 2024 calendar, which is now being sold to raise money for the initiative.

“I have organised a calendar, as a fundraiser, with photos I’ve taken at the garden over the last 15 months – the lifetime of the garden,” she explained.

“We are totally dependent on donations and the generosity of local folk.

“We are currently raising money to build an outdoor kitchen, to engage others with how to prepare vegetables and enjoy them too.”

People can buy the calendar, for £8, at the garden during opening hours – Wednesday 9am to noon, Friday 1pm to 4pm and Sunday 2.30pm to 4pm.

“We are also hoping to sell at the Beaucroft Christmas Fair on November 24, as the students often use the garden to learn about their natural environment,” Sarah added.
