Soil to Soup Project

Our exciting new horticultural project dug into the ground this week near the centre of Bodmin in a beautiful Victorian walled garden.  Although overgrown at the moment and in need of some tender loving care, the beautiful traditional walled garden and orchard will be transformed over the summer into a tranquil paradise of flowers and vegetables.  We are calling this our ‘Soil to Soup’ Project and we meet once a week with wellies at the ready to help create a little bit of Eden in the centre of Bodmin.  We have very few tools at the moment, so we would be very grateful for donations of forks and spades or even any plants you may have to spare.

Are you interested in gardening?  Enjoy doing activities with others to help? Like to sit in peaceful surroundings?  Then this is the project for you.

You can start by weeding or creating your own small flower bed or you can begin with a ground breaking vegetable plot.  You have the option to have a piece of ground on your own or sharing with others.

You don’t have to come every week but it helps!  You don’t always have to come to work hard – you may just want to come and chat or listen to the birds.

We are a new therapeutic project so join us when you can !

The gardening project may grow into a cook-what-you-grow project  and other offshoots, so come and be part of developing the ideas.

if you are interested in joining us, then do call Maureen Newman on 01208 892855  or email
