The Rectory Wildlife Garden is situated at the back of Fearon Hall. The trustees aim it to be a community resource for promoting wildlife, gardening, sustainable living and positive community interaction at all levels. By reinvigorating the garden, they aim to protect wildlife on site and encourage biodiversity.
One of the trustees is the local scout group leader. They want to involve scout and youth groups, provide training in organic gardening and growing of fruit and vegetables as well as landscaping, water use and conservation, tree management, planting and cultivating.
