New community food growing area at Norton Priory

05 September 2011

The Mersey Forest has helped secure funding for a new vegetable growing area for volunteers and community groups at Norton Priory Museum and Gardens, complementing the site's existing eco-building opened in 2008.



As with the sustainable straw bale solar-powered building, funding for the new growing area has been secured from local chemicals manufacturer Ineos Chlor Vinyls through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Great educational resource

The work-in-progress growing area is already breathing new life into the previously under-used area next to the eco-building, providing a great educational resource for community groups and a place for hardworking Norton Priory volunteers to socialise, learn and grow valuable produce.


Raised beds, fruit trees, pizza oven and more

The finished area will include a large raised bed with wheelchair access, planters for herbs and strawberries, espalier fruit trees along the walls, seating, a pizza oven and barbecue area for volunteers to use at social events, and rhubarb and asparagus grown for use in the Café and Priory shop.
