The Weller Centre Community Garden
Amersham Road, Caversham, RG4 5BP.
The Weller Centre is based on the Amersham Road estate in Lower Caversham. There is a small area of land to one side, which had become overgrown and rarely used.
Since March 2011, food4families has been working with various community groups and with families and young children, who use the neighbouring Caversham Children’s Centre, to create a food-growing garden. Much of the initial hard work was done by the youth group at the Community Centre. We have also had help and support from corporate volunteer groups. There are now several raised beds, some fruit trees and a pergola, with plans for a brick barbeque.
