Little Canfield Community Gardens and Allotments Association
A couple of years ago, Little Canfield Parish Council had the opportunity to acquire a plot of land near the village hall. The three acre site was completely overgrown with brambles, weeds, trees and general debris. With the support of the Parish Council and assistance from BTCV, the newly formed association, chaired by Sally Brady, worked for a whole year to clear and prepare the site, marking out 24 plots and two community plots.
The Edible Essex project has funded dip tanks and accessories for the water supply and also a new sign. The project has brought many members of the community together to work towards a common goal and the intention is to extend the facility to include access to all members of Little Canfield and Takeley communities, via village events and community gardening projects.
