Growing Together is sixteen acre private park located just past Leigh Valley Estate on the left, The idea is to bring families and community together by growing their own food and recreating at the same time.   Each family gets a 100 sq metres to grow their own food, the park will be beautifully landscaped, manicured lawns , fruit and birch trees,  play ground and more . We are having open days every weekend in May and June. We are asking the community to come along and we will give them personal guided tour of the park. More events planned for the summer.
