Welcome to De Vitre Community Gardens
On land owned by the NHS, we are working with the Friends group,developing an orchard and garden open to the public on the land next to De Vitre House on Ashton Road in Lancaster.
The lease was signed in September 2018 and paths were installed by contractors Oct-December. 50 fruit trees were planted by volunteers in January 2019 and the area was seeded with grass and wildflowers in April. During volunteer sessions we have been weeding, and installing a tool shed, entrance arch, fence and benches. All welcome!
