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 starting to pick our first crops of 2019 – delicious pink rhubarb! Call in on Wednesday or Friday mornings between 10am and 1pm to buy freshly-pulled rhubarb. Volunteer Sarah is pictured below with a bundle she took home to make the tasty Rhubarb Cake – see recipe in the sidebar.
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 to rabbit-proof the garden. 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.
