Serpentine Community Farm

The Serpentine Community Farm C.I.C.is a community growing space for vegetables and flowers in the centre of Buxton on a small site in the Serpentine Walks - opposite Pavilion Gardens. We have close links to Buxton Civic Association,  Buxton and Leek College and Alderbrook Day Centre.

The main aim is to transform a run-down and derelict council nursery into a thriving area of local food production. It was set up by volunteers who wanted to learn new skills and demonstrate how to grow things in Buxton’s cold climate.

The site was first developed with the approval of the Council to clear the debris and scrub, to allow access and develop a community growing space. Since its inception, the site has welcomed over 1800 volunteers accruing nearly 6000 volunteer hours, and helped to establish the growing space by installing two Polytunnels, renovating the extant greenhouse, building a series of experimental raised beds, cold frames, and a truly spacious wheelchair-friendly compost toilet.
The area is full of potential with existing buildings for classrooms and courses.

The Farm is currently under threat of relocation or disbanding as the current Council have plans to use the ground on which the Farm is located.

The site is run by volunteers and opens to visitors on a Wednesday and Sunday between 11am and 3pm.
