You can drop into the Community Gardens at any point during our opening hours to have a look around and to buy our organic produce. You don’t have to buy anything or be taking part in a specific activity to visit, you’re really welcome to come and look around, there’s always lots to see. We have lots of outside seats if you want to bring a drink / food – it’s a really calm place to unwind.
