West Shepton Community Food Forest

West Shepton Community Food Forest is a half-acre edible woodland situated just outside Shepton Mallet. The land has been available to us by a local landowner and philanthropist.

We planted the first three layers with the community in March 2019 and added a wild pond in August of the same year. It’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is free to visit! A small amount of parking for cars and bicycles is available onsite.

Note: we have ground-nesting birds at this site. Please respect the wildlife by leaving your dog at home and ensure that children (and grown-ups) stick to the paths!
