The Garden

The Castle Garden has been created over the past four years in the grounds of a disused Victorian water pumping station, which is now an indoor climbing centre. The kitchen garden  also features a forest garden, beehives, round house and willow dome and supplies the kitchen and cafe with organic produce. Herbs for tea blends and other herbal products are also grown and processed on site and sold in the shop and cafe. With self-sufficiency and sustainability at the heart of the garden's ethos, users recycle and compost kitchen waste and teach volunteers organic and sustainable food-growing methods.
