Approach Gardens is situated in the middle of a housing estate.  A resident-led committee was formed five years ago to manage this once-unloved and unused space.

Today it is a community food garden with  40 raised beds that are individually attended by families from the estate, the local school and a day care center .

. There are  fruit trees and bushes, and an award-winning wildlife area consisting of a small pond (with frogs and toads), native hedgerow, a 'bug hotel',  a wildflower meadow and lots of ivy for the bees.

. Often described as an oasis, the garden brings together many diverse local groups.
