St Mary's Garden provides social and horticultural therapy, training & volunteering opportunities for people particularly those who are disabled or have ill health. Gardening & Outreach services are offered including planting and sensory workshops and housing estate planting.
There are several 'rooms' in the garden: herbaceous borders, a herb and sensory area, vegetable garden, woodland with beehives, orchard, pond, a wildlife meadow and a greenhouse - all maintained by beneficiaries and volunteers. Highlights include our ‘Wish You Well’ garden, Silent Space area and our Therapy Shed
