Sun 13 July 3-5pm OpenFoodGarden – today!

Be Inspired!

Sat 13th July 3-5pm 

24 Oaklands Lane

AL4 0HR

Be Inspired with this Open FoodGarden – full of fruit and vegetables and  reclaimed materials – lazy Sunday afternoon seeing how others do it with this sustainable garden!

This large garden on the eastern outskirts of St Albans is described by its owner as a ‘Learn as You Go’ garden, which is constantly evolving. It is divided into sitting, recreational and food-producing areas.

Vegetables (which include runner beans, asparagus, potatoes, onions, carrots and beetroot) and some fruit are grown in four large raised beds, while other fruit is grown in the side borders. The fruit grown includes apples, peaches, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and rhubarb.

A major feature is the use of reclaimed materials in the structure of the raised beds, fencing, supports for runner beans and pathways. The garden, which backs onto open land, attracts a variety of wildlife.

Parking near the house is limited; bikes can be brought into the garden. Several buses going towards Hatfield run along the nearby Hatfield Road. Wheelchair access to the garden is restricted. No dogs please except guide dogs.

Suggested donation of £2.00 for over 16s; all proceeds go to TSA funds.

  1. Hi – this looks very interesting. Do you have any vacancies? My brother is moving here and is keen to join a permaculture organisation.

    Thanks,
