Townley Hall Walled Garden is a volunteer-run community garden situated in a 0.6 Ha Georgian walled garden within the grounds of the beautiful Townley Hall. The garden was established in 2021 during the pandemic to donate vegetables to people who experience food insecurity. In the past two years over 5 tonnes of vegetables have been donated to the charity FoodCloud. We want to make delicious healthy vegetables and garden know-how accessible to all.
Our ‘no dig’ garden is organically managed by an ever-expanding team. The garden has two polytunnels, fruit and flower plots, and 70 x 10 metre vegetable growing beds so far. It's a great spot to learn how to grow vegetables and flowers. We love to work together with the land in a thoughtful and careful manner, teaching and learning as we go. The aim is to enjoy nature, support biodiversity and each other and to encourage creativity and care for the soil.
