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.
