Over a half of the Garden area is lovingly looked after by the G.R.O.W Project, an opportunity for practical horticulture for adults with a learning disability. GROW stands for Garden-Recycle-Organics-Wildlife, giving you ideas to try in your garden too. The GROW Project provides a sympathetic workplace-type environment that uses horticulture therapy to deliver training and work experience Which goes towards improving trainees levels of independence, social inclusion, health, and happiness.
Depending on the season, you will find fruit trees, vegetable plots, wild flowers, bulbs, herb beds, a bug hotel to encourage insect life, and much much more. For children the wooden bears at the tee pee and Jungle Path are looking forward to welcoming you!
