Events and Courses

Thyme Together is a sociable session of gardening, conversations and enjoying the spring sunshine.


Thyme Together 


Our popular sessions for older people on Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm continue with short breaks at holiday times.




Do you know an older person who enjoys gardening but doesn’t have a garden? We give them the chance to keep up their gardening skills and share their experiences.  We welcome people who would like to learn more about gardening. 


There’s always tea, cake and good chat among friends!

Please register your interest using the Contact Us form, and we will send you details.

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









Festive Wreath workshops – yes, we’re planning for December 2019!

Dozens of people enjoyed making Festive Wreaths last 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.

Look out for details of events this autumn and winter on our Facebook page

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. 

West Berkshire Council run a mix of ‘walks for health’ in Berkshire.  Have a look at their programme for more details: Walking for health
