Pleasance Heat Resilient Garden
Several years ago, The Pleasance, adjacent to the old Holy Trinity churchyard on Church Street, had new planters installed by the borough council’s parks team. The herb garden was the first planting area to be completed and planted as part of Rugby Borough Council’s edible gardening project.
Over the winter of 2021-22 raised beds have been installed, funded by Warwickshire County Council's Green Shoots Fund. In Summer 2022, a community noticeboard was added which is now being used to highlight positive events and action in Rugby.
Transition Town Rugby are working on bringing this area back to life! The new beds need filling with plants. Fruit bushes have been planted around them.
Spare plants, seeds, tools and your time are all welcome! Dates and times for 2023 working parties are:
Saturday 8th April, 2pm-4pm
Saturday 13th May, 2pm-4pm
Saturday 10th June, 2pm-4pm
Saturday 8th July, 2pm-4pm
Saturday 12th August, 2pm-4pm
Saturday 9th September, 2pm-4pm

The noticeboard is available for Rugby residents and groups to use, based on the following criteria:
