A Garden run by volunteers
Our Garden Year runs from 1st September to 31st August. New memberships are available for the current garden year ending 31st August 2023.
Caroline, our gardener, will lead family activities in the Garden. Come along and sow fast growing herbs in pots to take home. Everyone is welcome.
It looks like the heatwave will continue to Saturday so we will need to water the borders and pots. There will be weeding to do and some sowing of biennial seeds.
Join us for an hour – or longer. Coffee and biscuits will be available.
Guided by our gardener Maria, our Tuesday volunteers have been busy planting native hedge near the potting area where the old compost bins used to be.
Visitors to Olden Garden are welcome to help celebrate Have a Grow Day, an initiative of Social Farms and Gardens. Come along at any time between 10am – 4pm on Saturday 18 June. Caroline, our gardener, will welcome you. Visitors can help with the day’s volunteer gardening tasks. You will be able to see our extensive woodland and the orchard as well as our greenhouse and vegetable plots, learning more about how our garden grows.
Information about vegetable growing will be available and volunteers will be able to sow herb seeds in a pot to take home with them.
100+ gardens not normally open to the public, including Olden Garden, will throw open their gates to visitors on 11 – 12 June.
Please note that Weekend Tickets are only available to purchase online, you will not be able to buy them at the garden gate. Book online now and you will instantly receive an e-ticket which you can show to our volunteers on your mobile device or print at home in advance.
