Garden Project

Our charming grounds include an allotment, quadrangle and sensory garden and there are tasks to be carried out all year round.

We welcome volunteers of all ages, abilities and backgrounds who want to learn how to grow and harvest fruit and vegetables, nurture plants, trees and flowers and generally maintain these outdoor areas to benefit the local community.

You can even follow the tasty produce from the ground to the table as our home-grown fruit and vegetables, from apples and plums to carrots and onions, are used regularly in The Ark community café.

The quadrangle includes an attractive outdoor seating area for café customers and other centre visitors and we also sell seasonal plants, arrangements and hanging baskets produced in our gardens.
