Five a Day 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 recruiting a Development Officer to manage the Five a Day project
This is an exciting opportunity to work with volunteers, enjoy the fruits and vegetables of the Five a Day garden, and develop new ideas to help more people of all ages discover and enjoy Five a Day. Download the Development Officer JD and apply before 27th January 2020.
Thank you to everyone who came to the Festive Wreath-Making Workshops in December using our coloured willow stems.
It was a pleasure to welcome back several old friends who brought their friends and work colleagues, and to welcome new friends, especially Janine and the WALX3JFitness crew, pictured below.
Thank you, Bayer
Our gardening volunteers were joined this 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.
Take a look at the range of innovative activities that we offer here at Five a Day Market Garden.

Every week older people visit Five a Day to help with gardening, enjoy tea and cake, and have a good chat making new friends.
