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

Eashing Cemetery Community Garden and Orchard is working with Ockford Ridge Rainbows, Brownies, Guides to help with the outside area at the Seymour Rd Guide Hut. Come along to the “Bring a Neighbour Day” on Saturday 17th February.

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 private owners, tenants, 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.
