Once the garden is fully open everyone will be welcome to come in and enjoy the space, every day during daylight hours. (It will be locked at night.)
The garden will contain a large number of food plants - vegetables in raised beds, fruit trees and bushes, herbs and edible flowers. In the shadier areas we will plant woodland wildflower and there will be a small meadow area, as well as ornamental shrubs and flowers to make the garden attractive to people and wildlife alike. There will be several seats and a lawn area where visitors will be able to relax and enjoy the garden.
Garden Work Days will be held on Sundays 13 and 27 March, 3 April. Meet at the garden, 11am. All welcome; tools will be provided. We will also hold a Public Meeting on Monday 14 March at The Belvedere Centre, Belvoir Street, Norwich, NR2 3AZ, 7.30 - 8.30pm. All welcome.
The garden opens to the public daily from Saturday 2 July And on Sunday 7th August 2011 we will celebrate with a Grand Opening Day.
