St Sidwell's Community Centre

What’s On


St Sidwell’s Community Centre has a wonderful and varied garden, right in the middle of Exeter. The garden is maintained by a team of volunteers, and includes our sunken vegetable garden. All the fruit and veg grown is used in our cafe. We use organic and nature friendly techniques in the garden, promoting wildlife and creating a space that can be enjoyed by all in the heart of Exeter.

Our gardening sessions run from 1-3pm on Thursdays. If you’re interested, please call 01392 666 222 or email
