Old Orchard Garden

The Old Orchard Garden is one of the Heath's education gardens maintained by our volunteers. Originally part of the walled garden of Kenwood House the space has been transformed into an interpretative space that can be used by groups and schools. Users can weave their way through our willow tunnels, search for bugs under logs, visit the stumpery, search for hedgehogs and reptiles in the undergrowth and watch for rare birds and other species around the tranquil pond.

The garden is available for schools, community groups and businesses to use for a range of activities:

  • Outdoor learning activities for schools
  • social activities for community groups and charities
  • Family events and social gatherings
  • wellbeing sessions like yoga and green gym
  • creative sessions including art classes and mindfulness
  • Corporate events, including team building and volunteering

The garden is private, fully accessible, is adjacent to local bus routes, has an on-site toilet and is perfect for groups to immerse themselves in nature.

If you would like to enquire about using the Old Orchard Garden, or you have an idea for an event that you’d like to discuss with us, please contact us. Community groups can use the space for free as part of our Community Heath project. Further information about corporate volunteering opportunities can be found here
