Get ideas for your own patch of earth in this vegetable and herb plot just outside the Eden Kitchen. Our chefs use produce from this garden in our cafes – though we can’t feed all our visitors on just this alone!

Nevertheless, a productive plot just half this size can provide a family with fresh, healthy vegetables all year round, reducing their carbon footprint and giving a great sense of satisfaction.

At Eden’s plant nursery, just down the road, we’re growing food for a local vegetable box scheme through a special programme for people whose lives have been affected by disability. As well as producing fresh food for the area, the People and Gardens programme has also seen participants progress into paid work. Find out more.
