Welcome to Whitstable’s community gardening space in the heart of our Kentish town. Visitors and volunteers can visit the garden to see the organically managed vegetable beds which demonstrate different ways of growing vegetables e.g. companion planting, Square Foot Gardening, using raised beds, green manures, mulching and no-dig methods. There are also beds of dye plants, herbal remedies and much more – so worth a visit.
We also sell our chemical free vegetables and plants on Thursdays.
Opening times: Thursdays 10am-2pm (Spring and Summer). Inductions from 11.30am.
We also open to the public on the second Saturday of each month from 10am – 1pm for volunteer gardening and teas and coffees.
