Our Market Garden is situated in the beautiful village of Englefield, West Berkshire. We are a not-for-profit community supported project which aims to engage the rural and urban community by:
– selling affordable, healthy, naturally grown produce
– educating children, adults and older people within an outdoor therapeutic environment, with a focus on art, nature and fruit and vegetable production
– encouraging people to get involved through volunteering
– offering a unique team building experience to corporate organisations.
We’re picking broad beans and courgettes and lifting new potatoes – delicious Charlotte, Orla and Red Duke of York varieties. Call in on Wednesday or Friday mornings between 10am and 1pm to buy these, or drop in to the Englefield Garden Centre where our produce is on sale near the entrance door.
The fantastic team from CROW (Conserve Reading On Wednesdays) visited in April to build new raised beds, tidy the compost, find a baby toad, and put up netting. Great photos here!
We hope that you enjoy having a look at the range of innovative activities that we offer here at Five a Day Market Garden.
Here are a few of the Thyme Together group enjoying the sunshine in April.
Every week older people visit Five a Day to help with gardening, enjoy tea and cake, and have a good chat making new friends.
