Lindsay Thomas, who helps to run the Exchange Project in the Sussex town of Seaford, told the Eastbourne Herald that the garden had seen a range of additions in recent years including a children's playhouse installed alongside a Mediterranean-themed yard.
One of the organisation's most recent acquisitions was a garden pond, which was paid for by local charity groups, it was also revealed.
Ms Thomas commented that the pond has proved to be a hit with local residents.
"It is a fabulous learning resource and not just for children. If you could only see how many adults spend ages watching the dragonflies over the fence during the summer," she said.
Meanwhile, recent research by Mintel found that allotment waiting lists have grown by 20 per cent in 2010.
The study also showed that one in five UK consumers now grow their own fruit and vegetables.
