The Salopian Garden, in Isleworth, is Cultivate London's community and training resource . The National Trust has leased this lovely garden to us, and during 2016 it has been transformed to include fruit trees, a herb garden, flower garden, vegetable beds, bee hives, accessible raised beds, green roofs, polytunnel classroom, and a wood-fired cob oven.
The Salopian Garden is an ever evolving project, and is being used for a number of workshops and events in the coming year. These include a horticulture CPD course for education professionals and a pilot programme with a local perinatal mental health education group, as well as regular workshops for members of the public and sessions for local schools.
