Hesketh with Becconsall Parish Council’s vision to develop a community garden has been short-listed for a Lancashire Environmental Fund award less than a year since it opened.

Based originally on a design concept created by Groundwork North West, the New Shoots Permaculture Community Garden in Shore Road has a path created around a central community space with a wildflower meadow, forest garden, fruit trees, wildlife pond, apiary, growing beds, poly tunnel and an allotment.

Inspired by the Offshoots Permaculture Garden in Burnley, Parish Council members wanted to transform an existing allotment site and provided matched funding to a grant of £12,880 from the Lancashire Environmental Fund (LEF).

Work began on the project in January 2013 and was completed in March.
