The garden is open from 10:00 to 14:00 to everyone on Mondays(Summer only), Wednesdays and Saturdays. You are very welcome to take a walk around, sit in the sun and just relax.
Equally if you’d like to get involved and volunteer you will receive a great welcome, a careful briefing of what is involved and the opportunity to become a member of the garden. You don’t have to come every week or stay for the whole session. You will be greeted by a volunteer co-ordinator who will tell you what you need to know and help you find a job to do. We stop for tea mid morning.
Do come and see for yourself.
