The Magharee House Garden, established 1896, comprises raised fruit and vegetable beds, orchard with apples, pears, plums and vines trees, shrubs and various exotic plants.
The garden, which has been managed for over 100 years, had fallen into disrepair, and is being carefully and sensitively reinstated with the assistance of The Conservation Volunteers.
New skills – and long-forgotten ones – are developed as the volunteer gardeners bring the gardens back to life with tidying, fertilising, planting and harvesting. On rainy days, time is spent creating window boxes filled with bulbs and decorative ferns, or on seasonal activities like preserving produce and creating natural crafts.
No previous experience is necessary, just enthusiasm, and new volunteers are always welcome. The Garden is a communal space with the people involved helping and supporting each other as the project develops into new and exciting areas.
