St Catherine's Church
St Catherine’s Community Garden
St Catherine's Church is in Stoke Aldermoor, Coventry. The project is based on unused land at the rear of the church. The Community Green Grant is one grant within a larger project to remove a derelict building from church land and redevelop the land into a outdoor space for the community.
The Community Green Grant is covering the garden elements including the pruning of existing trees and hedgerows and the installation of a wildflower area, composting area and raised beds. The grant will also cover additional items such as seating, gardening tools and a shed. There is a volunteer element to the project with training of garden volunteers by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.
The aim is that the garden will become a community space available not just to the many groups that use the church but also to community groups including schools, children’s groups, a dementia café, and users of the food bank.
