Five a Day Market Garden is situated in the beautiful village of Englefield, West Berkshire. We are a not-for-profit community supported project.
Five a Day Market Garden project 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
– offering a wonderful volunteering experience to people keen to learn more about gardening.
Five a Day is part of the Reading Gardening for Health and Wellbeing Network. Read the first Newsletter to see new opportunities being developed to help people recover from the stresses and changes of Covid-19.
Thank you CRoW (Conserve Reading on Wednesdays)
Thank you David, Terry, Cathy and Alan for all your help. You always make a huge difference in the Garden, and you’re great fun to work with!
Thank you, Bayer
Our gardening volunteers were joined last autumn by employees from Bayer plc based in Green Park who enjoyed being away from their emails and meetings to wield forks and spades for a day. As you see from the photos they had a great time digging and spreading manure to make a new asparagus bed! Thank you everyone from Bayer, and also Berkshire Community Foundation who introduced Bayer to us.
