The Garden

The Duchess of Cambridge visited this award-winning organic garden earlier in the year to hear about the benefits of this urban green space and see how it brings people together through gardening and food growing. Run by community volunteers, it contains growing plots for cultivation by residents. Organic gardening methods helps to encourage biodiversity and sustainability is key: recycled materials are used where possible, all garden waste is composted and rainwater is collected. A year-round programme of educational workshops and events engage the whole community and ornamental flower borders, pond and birdlife and a small woodland area also provide enjoyment.
