Following an extended period of closure to the public, the walled garden and cafe have now been open for their third summer in a row. We thought that it would be a great opportunity to try something a little different and offer the opportunity for the public to gain an insight to the changes that have been made to the garden during that time, so organised our first garden open day for early September.
Members of the public for a small fee, were able to access all parts of the garden (including the parts that are closed to the public) to see our produce grow beds, tropical and arid greenhouse display, orchard, double border and enjoy a hot drink and piece of home made cake in our Glass House Cafe. Access to the garden included a guided tour and talk about the varying projects in the garden, including the recent restoration of the Yew hedging to the front of the garden.
Proceeds from the day will help to support our ongoing work to support disabled adults within the walled garden, through our learning and skills programme of activities. Keep up to date via our social media accounts for up to date news on further fundraising and garden based open days and events.
