We love Broadstairs when it's all in bloom and if you love gardening why not volunteer some time to help with some of the public sites around the town that Town Team volunteers have taken on?  It's lovely to work together on our patches and see them take shape. Get in touch if you'd like us to keep you posted of dates when the Town Team gardeners are next tending one of their patches and looking for help.

We maintain multiple sites in and around Broadstairs as volunteers.


- Albion Street Car Park

- Louisa Bay Access Road

- Crampton Tower Bank

- The 'Library Bank' and Station Area

- Queen's Gardens

- Ramsgate Road

- Wrotham Crescent Community Garden

- The 'Lavender Bank' at the station


If you would like to join one of the teams who work on any of the sites, just drop us a line here. Check on our Facebook page for images of our wonderful garden volunteers in action and any open events we have planned.

October 23- January 24. Do you shop in Tesco?

If so you can help our gardening group towards a possible total of £1500 to help with our wildlife and environmental initiative. 


All you need to do when visiting either Tesco Metro in Broadstairs High Street or Tesco Extra at Westwood Cross is pick up a blue token at the checkout. 

There's a clear box just by the exit doors and we'd be very grateful if you op your little blue token in the Town Team slot to support us. 


Celebrating the success of our gardening volunteers. September 2023

For the third year running our volunteers our fabulous Garden volunteers have had another triumph!!

We’re so lucky to have such dedicated and enthusiastic people who live and love it here. The judge from the RHS South & Southeast ‘In Bloom’ awards obviously agreed - even though her assessment was done on a very, very wet day back in June!
Our entries this year topped even last year’s accolades. 
The scores for anyone that follows our progress since we first entered :
Broadway Banks and Station area – ‘Outstanding’ : 96/100
The fabulous Louisa Bay beds – again ‘Outstanding’ – 94/100
Albion Street Car Park – yet another ‘Outstanding’ 94/100 Ramsgate Road ‘ Thriving’ 74/100 – (which considering they are still developing the wildflower area this is still a significant achievement). 
A group went to RHS Wisley for the awards ceremony. A special mention for Sue Wainwright who heads up the team for her 1 of only 2 national special 'Community Champion' awards too!
We also hosted a celebration tea in Pierremont Hall too and heard more about the wonderful, local Dan Cooper Garden

Environmental and Wildlife initiative 2022 and beyond

Broadstairs Town Team have been looking after 8 community garden spaces for over 10 years now.

Our focus for 2023  and beyond is to ensure that all the gardens encourage wildlife, are drought resistant and have plants that not just like it here, but mitigate pollution and thrive.



The sustainability of all the spaces that our wonderful volunteer gardeners look after is of paramount importance to us.

That's where you might be able to help us. Even the smallest donations will all add up, and therefore will enable us to buy relevant plants, ensure they are well fed and nurtured and provide conditions and an environment where wildlife not just like it but love it, and make it their home. We have set up a Crowfdunder page specifically for this purpose and even small donations will help us sustain all the spaces going forward for us all to enjoy. If you are interested in making a regular donation to help, we''d be delighted too.

Please email and we can give you more information.Thank You


Gardens groups and the Royal Horticultural Society

Our first entry into the RHS 'It's Your Neighbourhood' scheme was in 2021.

The efforts of our amazing volunteers were rewarded with incredible feedback for our first foray.


For example, Louisa Bay was a new site to us in 2021, and the judges deemed this brand new garden to be 'Thriving' as was our wonderful more established 'Library Bank' an extraordinary achievement and a testament to community gardening.


'It's Your Neighbourhood' '23 plans.

We have exciting plans in development for our entry into the RHS scheme again this year.

We'll be sharing our progress and calls out for additional volunteer help on our Facebook page. However, if you'd like to be added to our mailing list for updates please email

RHS 'It's Your Neighbourhood'  2022

2022 was our second year venturing into the world of "In Bloom".

The Town Team Garden Group entered all the eight gardens we maintain in Broadstairs into the category “It’s Your Neighbourhood”. Our entries were assessed in July, by none other than Peter Holman the chairman of South and South East in Bloom. After months of eagerly awaiting our results a small group of volunteers attended the Awards ceremony in Farnham on 23 September.

To our delight we received Outstanding results. 

Saturday 8 October was a day to down tools and celebrate our gardening success with volunteers and sponsors.

Celebrations over, we are now working hard to plan and turn our attention to the 2023 entries.
