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.
The garden has extensive compost bins, a composting toilet, wildlife pond, a ground water pump with water storage, a polytunnel and a Forest Garden. Where possible we use building materials that are either re-used or recycled wood from pallets or locally coppiced untreated chestnut.
We also sell organic veg and plants.
Coming soon we’ll have tomato, sweet peppers, chilli , squash , pumpkin, courgette plants and more. All produced without chemicals by our volunteers.
