The Chedworth Diggers are a communal garden. We grow vegetables organically as a group and share in the harvest. we work together helping and sharing in the care of the garden as well as exchanging skills and knowledge. We hold community days that aim to bring anyone living in the village together and enjoy the area and company. membership is open to the people living in the village and costs twenty pounds per year.

Please come along on the last Sunday of each month to share in our communal work day up at the Diggers Patch on Fields Road, near the football pitch. All welcome from 11a.m, even just to chat!
