Goscote Greenacres Community Garden was launched in 2012 following a £250,000 makeover of the Goscote Lane Grounds which houses the Goscote Centre and the canal side open space behind the current building.
The centre provides opportunities for people with disabilities who use the centre as well as residents, community groups and schools in the Goscote area.
Residents, community groups and children’s facilities are now using the community gardens which feature 45 garden plots (including 20 raised beds), fruit trees, polytunnels and a variety of other growing opportunities.
A community cabin is available for events and meetings. The site also includes a great Community Café - Greenacres Restaurant - open to the public for breakfast and lunch, a training kitchen and social enterprise opportunities. A woodland walk, canal side walk and fishing club are being developed over the next few months.
Goscote Greenacres is an initiative which is a partnership between Walsall Council's Adult Social Care, Walsall Adult and Community College, North Walsall Area Partnership and others.
