The Garden

King Henry's Walk Garden was created by the local community for the local community, and contains growing plots for cultivation by residents. Run entirely by volunteers, its organic gardening methods help to encourage biodiversity. Sustainability is a key theme; recycled materials are used wherever possible, all garden waste is composted and rainwater is collected. A year-round programme of educational workshops and events engage the whole community. Communal areas consisting of lawns with ornamental flower borders, a wildlife pond, and a small woodland area also provide enjoyment. Plants - cultivated in the garden's greenhouse - will be on sale.
