The Community Garden

The Community Garden is a thriving and vibrant area of the Palace Gardens.

Originally the Kitchen Garden, then becoming fallow, it is now home to vegetable, fruit and flower beds and a Victorian-style greenhouse, and provides a space for volunteers and community groups to come and learn new skills.

Look out for our produce on sale outside the shop, or being used on the menu in The Bishop’s Table. As well as our tasty vegetables and fruit, we also grow beautiful flowers which are used for displays in the Palace and sold as bunches in the shop. Flowers are usually available from June-late October.

If you are interested in volunteering in the garden or bringing a community group to the garden please contact James Cross on 01749 988111
