Allesley Park Walled Garden
The beautiful season of Autumn has arrived. It is also the harvest season at our Walled Garden. Allesley Park Walled Garden Group would like to invite you to join us at our Apple Day from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, October 14.
The Walled Garden has fewer fruits in our orchard this year. We still managed to prepare some fruits on this occasion. However, you are welcome to bring your apples from your garden or buy them and bring them to the Walled Garden and we will press them and make your juicy juice.
There is also a refreshment for you and your family to enjoy. You can also meet our local hedgehog group with the full information on how to look after hedgehogs. So come and join us for a fun day.
Our summer event is coming.
Have you visited Allesley Park lately? The vegetables, herbal gardens and trees in the orchard are thriving. Bring your children and loved ones to come visit us in the summer.

Education project – School Visits
We are glad to be involved with three primary schools as part of their curriculum. The pupils who visited the Walled Garden were enjoying sowing seeds, guided tours in orchards, composting sites, wormery and vegetable patches with our volunteers. They showed enthusiasm about learning all the aspects. One of the schools also paid another visit for the harvest. We were also enjoying the hosting and interaction with them.
