The Golden Hill Community Garden aims to increase the skills and confidence of local people in growing food through volunteering and training. It aims to provide a supportive atmosphere where everyone feels valued and also promote healthy food and healthy activity. The project is inclusive and site accessible. They welcome everyone to come and get involved and especially welcome volunteers with physical and/or mental ill health or impairments, people with learning difficulties as well as children and young people.
They hope that everyone can join in with food growing, taking up learning opportunities, and experiencing the restorative enjoyment of being in an outdoor natural environment. The site uses organic methods and aims to encourage a diversity of wildlife.
