The bench was much needed for the project’s volunteer days, which take place every Wednesday from 10 am – 4 pm and the last Saturday of the month, also from 10 am – 4 pm.
Founded in April 2016, Eves Hill Veg Co was until now using sacks of compost and stacked-up crates at lunch time.
Co-ordinator Hannah Claxton said: “Having a communal space for coming together each lunch time is a huge asset to the project: it really fits in with our aim to build community through food.”
The project also runs horticultural training programmes and courses and has a weekly vegetable box collection scheme.
Eves Hill Veg Co has just been accepted on Locality’s Bright Ideas programme, a support scheme for community businesses with advice and funding.
