Roots for the Future is working with Waverley Borough Council to deliver a new community garden project in Godalming.

Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard brings people together from Godalming and surrounding villages to enjoy and enhance their local green space. The new community garden is at Eashing Cemetery on Frankly Rd and everyone is invited to help preserve its natural habitat and to enjoy its peace and tranquillity.

Join your neighbours and meet new people at community planting days at Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard, Franklyn Rd, Godalming, GU7 2LD.

Upcoming dates

We have events with Brownies, Beavers, Cubs and the local school. Get in touch to find out more or to enquire about your uniform group, school or community group getting involved. We welcome corporate team days at the garden too.
We will be bringing back our regular Tuesday evening volunteer sessions, 4 – 6pm in April from Tuesday 15th April until the end of October.
If you can, please bring your own spade and gardening gloves to the events.


All ages and abilities welcome. Want to know more about the many benefits of community garden? Read all about it in this blog. Community gardening – what’s in it for me?

Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard is an important place: it symbolises the wider regeneration of the area and how all the partners are working together to help to create a stronger, lasting sense of community for tenants, private owners, and their visitors alike. Through this project, we can see, visit, and experience these new trees, wildflowers and the Garden which will develop over the next few years.

Eashing cemetery community garden and orchard is a new initiative for Roots for the Future with partners Godalming Town Council, Waverley Borough Council, Thakeham Homes and COPSE – Community Orchards Projects South East.
