The Secret Garden.

The Secret Garden.

We have a community garden on the estate for people to help grow flowers, vegetables and herbs, or simply to visit and enjoy.  It’s called the Secret Garden because it’s tucked away behind one of the blocks. 

The entrance is by the Kimpton Road walkway onto the estate.

About the garden

The garden includes a woodland area, raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse, seating areas, a herb garden and more.  Read more about current work in the garden on the Secret Garden blog 

GET INVOLVED 

Everyone is welcome to visit the garden or help out, and you don’t have to live on the estate.  You can help with planting, weeding, harvesting, or simply sit and enjoy the space.  If you don’t know anything about gardening please don’t worry because we are all learning!

Planning your visit

Please note:

  • Children aged eight and under need to be accompanied by an adult.  
  • Only guide dogs are allowed in the garden.

Opening times are on the blog.  

To find out more, join the Secret Garden Friends WhatsApp group  or email: gardeninginfo@deynsford.org

Garden and grounds committee

The garden is run by the garden and grounds group, a TMO sub-committee, with support from a community gardener.

The gardening group aims is to provide opportunities for people to:

  • Enjoy gardening in the Secret Garden, across the estate grounds and at home
  • Develop their gardening and horticulture skills
  • Work together with others of all gardening abilities for the benefit of the whole community
  • Garden sustainably to support the local ecosystem in line with the TMO’s One Planet Plan
  • Connect with nature
  • Create green spaces across the estate for play, socialising and tranquility
  • Produce vegetables, fruit and herbs for sharing.
