The Walled Garden
The Walled Garden was constructed in the mid 18th century as indicated by the granite stone near the main entrance to The Elms which bears the date 1751.
Nowadays, the Walled Garden promotes the organic growing of heritage fruit and vegetables. The garden and its contents is managed by a dedicated group of Trust volunteers who are always glad of extra help and welcome people with a few spare hours each month who would like to get involved. No experience is required, only the willingness to embrace your green fingers and get your hands dirty.
Typical tasks undertaken by volunteers in the walled garden include:
- Planting and growing organic fruit and vegetables
- Planting and growing plants beneficial to wildlife
- Pruning fruit bushes and trees
- Construction and maintenance of raised beds
- Tool maintenance
- Collecting fallen leaves for composting
- Turning compost heaps
