The Gardens celebrated 21 years in 2020!
Street Community Gardens Group (MSCGG) came into existence following the
Newcastle City Council (NCC) adopting a Community Gardens Program in
1999. In June, 2000, the NCC published ‘Community Gardens’, a booklet
which was the official guide to the community greening volunteer
training program, and it was expected that all community garden groups
“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”
