Serpentine Community Garden Society

After years of discussion between Transition Buxton and High Peak Borough Council a dream to develop a new food education centre began to be realised in 2015 and the Serpentine Community Farm (SCF) was formed.

A licence to restore and use the derelict Council plant nursery in Serpentine Walks encouraged volunteers to clear the site in preparation for further development. Great works have been completed since the initial idea including restoring a glass house; new polytunnels, raised beds and dozens of planters in intensive use; a terrace of composting bins and a composting toilet.

In 2020 the SCF became a Charity requiring a name change and the Serpentine Community Garden Society was formed. 

The Society has an amazing website documenting plans, current status and its history.  We recommend you have a look at it at the following website:
