What we get up to

No gardening experience is necessary! The Walled Garden is a place to learn and grow together. You can come as an experienced gardener or someone simply looking to dig in. If the plants don’t interest you then there’s plenty of DIY-type tasks around the garden that might.

If it’s your first time we’ll be better able to show you the ropes on a weekday, but if you’re unable please don’t let that stop you coming on a weekend.

If you’re not yet tempted enough, know that each Monday a hot lunch (read: soup) will be provided! We usually take a break to eat lunch together but make a special point of it on Mondays at around 1pm.

What you’ll need

Any tools you might need will be provided. Please do bring:

  • Clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Gardening gloves (if possible, we do have some spare)
  • Water and snacks

Accessibility

There is a composting toilet on site, although it is not wheelchair accessible. We have no indoor heated spaces, electricity, or mains water supply. Footpaths are uneven and occasionally narrow.
