The Green Backyard

The Green Backyard

The Green Backyard is a community growing project in central Peterborough. From this urban base we have transformed a once-derelict former allotment site into a beautiful and productive green space. We promote sustainable lifestyles and raise awareness of environmental issues through practical demonstration and community involvement. With regular workdays, events and activities we bring people and communities across Peterborough together to be a bit greener, healthier and happier.
We are open four days per week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday: 11.00 - 16.00). You don’t need any gardening experience - just turn up.
