The aim of the FoSJP Gardening Team is to help Southampton City Councilto maintain and further develop the planting in St.James’ Park, in particular with a view to using interesting and colourful plants that will attract wildlife and provide community involvement in the Park.

We meet in the Park on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, from 1.00pm to 3.00pm (weather permitting), with additional opportunities to be arranged as the need arises for people to get involved. You don’t need to be a gardening expert to join us: just to be enthusiastic, keen to learn, and able to commit to a few hours in the Park every now and then.
