Meanwhile Gardens

Community gardening in BelfastGroundwork transforms space into gardens for the whole community.

Our Meanwhile Gardens lie on space that has been earmarked for future development but until then, Groundwork creates an attractive and accessible garden for people living locally.

We run gardening sessions and events across our gardens, teaching people gardening skills, how to grow vegetables and fruit, and teaching people about the benefits of being outdoors and eating healthily. The gardens are a fantastic opportunity for communities to connect with nature, food and each other.

We have gardens in Glenbryn, Shankill and Connswater. We welcome visitors, volunteers, new and seasoned gardeners as well as organisations and companies who would like to get involved.
