The Garden

The Kitchen Garden at Chiswick House was established in the 17th century, and today is a productive and vibrant hub for community groups, visitors and wildlife.

With the assistance of a team of dedicated volunteers, the gardeners grow a wide abundance of vegetables, fruit and flowers using organic principles and no-dig methods, that are then sold to visitors and donated to the community.

A diverse range of community groups from across Hounslow use garden as a meeting space for education, to improve their mental health and as the inspiration for a range of artworks.

Please note that:

Kitchen Garden Team: Lauren Jennings & Stephen Histed
