• The community gardens
These consist of a group of small plots within the churchyard. Individuals and family groups pay a small amount annually for their plot where they grow a wide variety of fruits, flowers and vegetables. The money raised goes towards the purchase of compost and other regular maintenance costs.

• The oil syndicate
A group of residents buy their domestic oil through this syndicate and a rebate is generated which is then given back to the village. In recent times it has contributed to the upkeep of the church path, the creation of more plots in the community gardens, and the regular mowing of the churchyard.

• Wildflower area in the churchyard
This project began in 2020 with the full support of the PCC. Seed has been sown in an area of the churchyard and the hope is that this will flourish over the coming years.

• Fruit trees in Pocket Park
Enterprise Badingham was given a grant by the Tree Council in order to buy 14 heritage fruit trees for Pocket Park. These were planted in December 2020.

• Bench in Pocket Park
A grant from Adnams Brewery enabled Enterprise Badingham to buy a substantial bench for Pocket Park, which has been situated near to the fruit trees.

• Verge cultivation
An area of verge in Rectory Road is now a designated conservation site for wildflowers and insects.
