What is the Walled Garden?
The Walled Garden is an outdoor community space in the heart of Barton Hill. It provides a much-needed opportunity for local people from many different walks of life to engage with nature, food-growing, wood-working, outdoor cooking, and creative workshops. This beautiful space brings together diverse members of the community to spend time, learn, work and celebrate together.
The garden is a varied space, with an allotment-style food-growing area, two polytunnels, an outdoor kitchen with a cob pizza oven and cooker, a magical roundhouse, a medicinal herb garden, a green woodwork area, a forest garden, a compost toilet, and many more herbs, mature trees and bushes.
The Walled Garden opened as a community gardening project on 11th December 2010. It is located in a historic walled garden of an old vicarage. From the beginning, its aim has been to welcome people who do not usually have access to being in nature or learning about growing food – especially refugees, asylum seekers, and Somali people. The project has been growing and blossoming ever since it began, providing a valuable green community space to the residents of this predominantly urban area.
