The aim of the FoSJP Gardening Team is to help Southampton City Councilto 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.

We meet in the Park every Wednesday, from 1.00pm to 3.00pm (weather permitting). 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. If it’s your first visit and you can’t find the team, please make contact with Marina via the Cafe.
