The Museum in the Park Walled Garden volunteer project has been chosen by the Engage Foundation as one of their ‘community award’ projects, where the public can choose to vote for their favourite idea to receive funds.
From day one, when the project was conceived, the project team were under no illusions, being an outdoor space the Walled Garden will never reach a 'finished point' when no more needs doing.
We opted very early on not to plant out the Garden until the construction works were complete. In addition the project with Stroud Valleys Project in the south-west corner of the Garden has provided some useful pointers going forward. Even this area requires the final landscaping and planting.
