Barley Wood Walled Garden is a Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden, which was built in 1901. It has been carefully restored by the current owners and the Head Gardener Mark Cox, who grows a wide range of vegetables, some heritage, which supply the Ethicurean restaurant on the same site, as well as vegetable box schemes and local markets. Fruit is also grown. The site includes the Walled garden, polytunnels and an orchard.
Our visit will start with coffee in the polytunnel on arrival. You will then receive an introductory talk by Mark Cox, head gardener followed by a Walk and Talk with him, when you will have the opportunity to learn about the garden, soil, vegetables, seeds, plants growing, and more. You will have plenty of time to wander, ask questions, and find out as much as possible about this fascinating and productive garden.
The cost is £15 per person. Please bring weather appropriate clothing and a packed lunch.
