The Garden

In 2018 we were given a quadrant of the churchyard at St Paul's that had been left to itself for 15 years in order to develop a community garden. The churchyard is bordered by 19th-century plane trees, so we decided to take inspiration from them and developed the space around what you might find at the edge of the canopy of a woodland. The team at St Paul's Woodland Garden have set out to enable people, some of whom are the most vulnerable in our community, to access gardening and green space and so enjoy the benefits that participation can bring. It believes that gardens and nature can have a transformational impact on people’s lives.
