ABOUT

 Global Gardens Project is a community growing project based in Cardiff. 

 

Our vision is to create a growing space that supports community-based sharing of food and cultures.  

 

We have an allotment site where we are cultivating an organic kitchen garden, celebrating crops from around the world.

 

The crops grown are used in our quarterly community suppers and shared within the local community.

 

We also have a mobile pizza oven which is available for community events.

The Velodome was an idea birthed by cyclist and gardener, Kate Knowles. Comprising of old bicycle wheels connected together to form kind of wheel-y igloo, the velodome was relocated from the allotment site in Pontcanna to the Global Gardens Flaxland site with the support of a freewheeling cycling fleet.
