Hiring our Eco-Building
About the building
The building is located in Growing Communities' Allens Garden site. This is a peaceful, walled garden where we grow organic salad vegetables, fruit and herbs for our organic box scheme. The wooden building is at the far end of the Allens Gardens site, surrounded by trees and has one comfortable open-plan space that can hold around 10-15 people.
The building has huge French doors that open onto a decked area next to our wildlife pond. Designed in line with ecological principles the building also has a living sedum roof and a fully functional unisex composting toilet!
Due to limited electric heating the building is more suitable for daytime warm weather use. It also has a small kitchenette - tea and coffee making facilities, electric hob, and organic Fair-trade tea and coffee are provided.
When the building is available
The building can be made available for hire during daylight hours on most days (not Mondays or Tuesday afternoons). Please email to discuss available dates and times or to discuss any aspect of building hire in more detail.
Hire rates for community organisations/social enterprises are as follows:
Weekdays - full day £100, half day £60 (am or pm). We can't hire in the evenings as the whole park closes at dusk.
Weekend - £120 per day. You would need to be able to pick up keys during the week.
Corporate hire rates and longer term hire rates available on request.
By hiring our eco-building you are helping to support our projects; helping Growing Communities to provide local people with long-term, practical alternatives to the damaging food system that currently exists.
