Built in 2013-14 the kitchen garden transformed a neglected corner of Marble Hill Park. It is now a showcase for heritage varieties of produce, which visitors can sample in season. People with no allotment or garden have the use of ten community plots, which are currently all allocated. The success of the garden depends upon the dedication of a team of volunteers. You do not need any special knowledge to be a volunteer. We welcome people with all levels of gardening skill. This is a great opportunity to learn about gardening, enjoy exercise and fresh air and meet new people.
