FoSJP Gardening Group


You are welcome to join our wonderful Volunteer Gardening Group.  We meet in the Park every Wednesday, from 1.00pm to 3.00pm (weather permitting). After the session we all sit down with a well deserved cuppa and biscuit or two on the decking. 

You don’t need to be a gardening expert to join us: just to be enthusiastic, keen to learn, and able to commit to a few hours in the Park every now and then. 

The aim of the FoSJP Gardening Group is to help Southampton City Council to maintain and further develop the planting in St. James’ Park, in particular with a view to using interesting and colourful plants that will attract wildlife and provide community involvement in the Park.

If you have questions or would like more information about joining this wonderful team, please contact
