Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Our regular volunteer gardening session has had to change format during the pandemic, now being a bookable session with limited numbers. We’ve turned this into more of a working party, so if you’re interested in helping us do the works and maintenance required
to take the garden into the next more active phase of development, please get in touch at 

We are a not for profit community organisation based in the walled garden at Sudley Estate. We’re developing the garden into a resource for community health and wellbeing through nature and the healing power of plants. We run targeted activities for people
with disabilities and long term health conditions, forest school holiday clubs for children, and community events and activities.

What we do

  • Therapeutic Gardening
  • Forest School and Nature Play
  • Nature Therapy
  • Outdoor Mind Body Practice (Tai Chi, Yoga etc)
  • Community events and activities
  • Volunteer gardening and land work

Autumn Herbal workshops

With our Resident Medical Herbalist Sue Sprung from Herbs for Healing.  

  • Fri 16 Oct 2020 1.30-3pm Wonderful Weeds for Adults (there is another slot for children available)

Email as soon as possible to book your free place

Herbal medicine is the practice of using plants and whole plant extracts to support healthy functioning of the body to aid and restore good health. As a holistic therapy, it is about treating ‘the person’, not ‘the illness’ and as such offers individual
support, typically through the use of several plant extracts, to address the particular aspects of body function that are out of balance.

In these sessions we’ll look at the many uses of common herbs and plants we find around us in parks and gardens. So many plants are often overlooked or considered weeds yet have the ability to help improve our health and wellbeing. We will embrace the humble
weed and look at the healing properties of many everyday plants that are easy to identify and cost nothing to pick.

All workshops will be safely managed and run in an outdoor space where social distancing and good hygiene will be observed. All materials and equipment will be provided and will not be shared. We are limiting spaces so although workshops are free, you must
register to confirm your place.

Helping Ourselves – the gateway to health and wellbeing

  • Are you living with chronic illness and want a new perspective on your health?
  • Are you looking for change, and how to move on in your life?

Here’s a fantastic opportunity from one of the lovely therapists we’re proud to work with in the walled garden. Free and specialised support tailored to your needs and aimed at empowering you to improve your health and wellbeing. Please share with anyone
