Stream Walk Community Garden

Registered charity no. 1171504

Welcome to Stream Walk Community Garden: a thriving gardening project in the heart of Whitstable. A mosaic of organic growing beds and wildlife habitats, this project is a safe, urban oasis for the whole community. We have a plant nursery, a polytunnel for year-round growing, an outdoor classroom, activity areas, a fire pit and a compost loo as well as a Bodger’s Hut from which we run woodworking sessions.

Run predominantly by local volunteers, we are supported by our Garden Co-ordinator and a growing team of Sessional workers.   Together, we are dedicated to creating  a welcoming, creative and inclusive environment for all ages to access gardening and a range of nature-related activities as a route to wellbeing and greater social connection. 

Twice-weekly drop-in sessions are at the beating heart of the garden. These sessions on Tuesdays (10am-12) and Thursdays (10-2pm) support our volunteers, maintain and develop the garden and foster friendship around the  common purpose of growing and enjoying the outdoors.  

We also run a number of weekly groups for adults and children including Little Green Fingers for pre-schoolers and their carers (Fridays 9.30-11.30) and Green Woodworking and Carpentry in the Bodger’s Hut (Wednesdays and Thursdays).

We also sell our chemical free vegetables and plants on Thursdays.

Successful funding bids have enabled us to welcome more children and families, more pre-schoolers, families living with neurodiversity, refugee families, adults with learning disabilities and adults with dementia.
