Community Gardening

The Community Green Hub was established at St James Garden in Birkenhead in March 2021, thanks to funding from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Environment Fund.

With the amazing support of local residents and community groups, we have turned an overgrown and neglected site into a welcoming space for people to meet with others and develop their horticultural skills. We have raised beds for fruit, vegetables, herbs and wildflowers, a tree nursery and hedgerow, wildlife area and pond. We also hold events and gardening and eco craft workshops.

All are welcome to come along to enjoy the garden, pick some fresh produce or join with our volunteers. Sessions take place every Wednesday, with other days by arrangement. Access to the site is between 192 and 194 Tollemache Road. Please email for more details.

The Falkland Road Organic Gardeners (FROG) grow food and flowers in the raised beds and polytunnels around the WEN building in Wallasey. Members of the group enjoy the harvest of fruit and vegetables that grow and ripen over the year, such as broad beans, rainbow chard, salad leaves and tomatoes. FROG always make sure that there are plenty of plants ready for the sale at the annual Spring Fair, a great fundraiser for WEN. Creativity is encouraged, with opportunities to try outdoor crafts such as willow weaving and topiary.

Membership of FROG is open to anyone who has completed a gardening course at WEN.  For more details about FROG or the next gardening course, please email
