Thyme Together 

Our popular sessions for older people will return this spring starting on Thursday 4th April from 1pm to 3pm.

The weekly sessions on Thursday afternoons will continue with short breaks at holiday times.

If you know of an older person who may have loved gardening, or someone who now has time to explore a new interest then Thyme Together will be perfect for them.

Do you know someone who would like to come to the Thyme Together sessions? Please register your interest using the Contact Us form, and we will send you details.

We are very grateful to Berkshire Community Foundation for funding the Thyme Together at Five a Day sessions.

All of our events, courses and workshops take place in the attractive walled garden of Five A Day Market Garden.  With plentiful parking alongside the garden, easy access and a scrumptious tearoom just down the road, it couldn’t be easier!

Festive Wreath workshops

Dozens of people enjoyed making Festive Wreaths in December, a brilliant way to get in the Christmas mood and make a wreath using willow and evergreen material from the Five a Day garden.

Other attractions in and around Englefield

After visiting Five A Day Market Garden and stocking up on some tasty produce, we would highly recommend a visit to Englefield Tea Rooms for a delicious range of sandwiches, cake and teas.  Just a five minute walk down the road!

Additional attractions in the village include Englefield Garden Centre, just across the road from us.  Many of their shrubs and perennials are grown on site or sourced locally.  More information can be found on their website:

For walkers, there are lots of interesting walks in the area.  West Berkshire Council has a wealth of information about walking and cycling.

Visit the local Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust Moor Copse nature reserve in Tidmarsh, on the right just north of the motorway bridge on the road to Pangbourne.  The reserve is part of Sulham and Tidmarsh Woods and Meadows Site of Special Scientific Interest, with its 70 acres comprising a series of three wet woodland copsesMoor Copse is renowned for its woodland flowers, butterflies and moths.
