Renovation of the Walled Kitchen Garden
Tuesday 24th March 2020
What better time to renovate our Walled Kitchen Garden than now. Over the coming weeks we will be sharing the progress of our new renovation project with you. The space, which used to be a horse arena will be transformed into our very own Walled Kitchen Garden used for corporate, school and community groups. The garden will become a haven of fresh produce with vegetables, herbs and fruits promoting the ‘field to fork’ benefits.
Across the weekend the Ropner family and residents on the Estate came together to start phase one – creating the canvas. The damson hedges have been pulled away, the fences taken down and the space has been cleared.
Now for phase two…

Phase two of the renovation of Camp Hill’s Walled Kitchen Garden is in full swing! In the beautiful spring sunshine, the Poly Tunnel is now up, thanks to the great work of the Camp Hill team.
The Poly Tunnels are a brilliant form of growing your own fruit and vegetables all year round. This will be a place where clients and the community alike can grow, nurture and pick their own fresh produce as well as learning new skills on the way.

Many hands make light work
As well as many Yorkshire brews along the way! Robert, Jo and Poppy have removed the tough turf and cleared the space in the Poly Tunnel, placing down the old cast iron walkways used in the original Camp Hill greenhouses. This adds a timeless, recycled piece of history to our current project for many future clients to enjoy.
Next stop, raised beds!

The raised beds are in!
Another week of hard work, the team have managed to put 20 raised beds into the Walled Kitchen Garden. The beds will be used for our very own fresh produce with plenty of veggies as well as seasonal flowers. The Camp Hill renovation project is coming along nicely and we can't wait to share it with you, our clients and community.

Take a look at our progress, the Walled Kitchen Garden is really taking shape! If you look closely you can even spot Jo's Hebridean Sheep grazing in the Back Park.
