Community Garden

The walled garden provided fruit and vegetables for the Insole household. In public ownership, its need and maintenance declined and it gradually became like a wilderness, in danger of being overrun by sycamores.

Due to the initiative of local resident John Isaacs, it was saved from its relentless decline. In 2009, a group of hardy gardeners came on Saturday mornings. Digging and clearing one corner, they worked their way around the garden. Since then it has been used to grow fruit on a communal basis, with small plots for those interested in growing their own crops.

There are around 30 members of the Insole Court Community Garden Group who meet in regular sessions to work on the garden and socialise.

If you want to become a member of the garden and help with regular garden tasks, please email Angela at [email protected].
