Glengall Wharf Garden

Mein Kopf ist gefüllt von visuellen Eindrücken und den vielen Gesprächen aber ich möchte diesen Community Garten nicht nicht gesehen haben. Die Hitze wird unerträglich

The garden is a new project that is reclaiming an unkempt part of Burgess Park. Since 2012 we have been developing a large community garden that shows the use of a wide variety of different sustainable gardening methods, all managed by local people.
We grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables, using permaculture techniques to develop an edible forest garden. A pond, pergola, hot composting, natural bee-keeping, hügelkultur, a polytunnel and more can be seen either completed or in development.
The site is on an old wharf of the Surrey Canal and the old cobbles are still in evidence.
A lively, diverse and busy project, we are an ‘ideas hub’ for alternative gardening and sustainability. The garden is a Permaculture Association Land Centre, so a great place to find out more about this type of ecological design.
