There are 25 plots in the garden and a waiting list for eager residents to take part.

Martin moved around the corner eight years ago and started in the garden shortly afterwards.

“It all centres around the garden. There’s a barbecue there, we do quarterly meetings, working bees – it’s great for the community.”
