The Community Garden at The Old Mushroom Farm began in Spring of 2020.
Previously used as a truck yard (back in the Mushroom Farming days), the sunny North-facing bank was selected for re-greening.
Terraces were levelled overlooking the valley and dams, and allotments laid out with repurposed concrete slabs.
The beds were filled with rich compost, and the paths covered with wood chips. An avenue of lemon trees leads the eye down the centre walkway, and a row of plum trees lines the edge of the garden.
Guests staying in our accommodation units are welcome to harvest from the garden during their entire stay to enhance their meals. For day visitors, there's an opportunity every Thursday and Friday morning from 9 am to 12 pm to personally gather organic vegetables for a nominal fee.
