Walled Garden: More Sneak Peaks
As progress continues on establishing the secret garden, we invite you to have a sneak peak!
With the main building works completed the Museum team with the help of Walled Garden volunteers and local artist Cleo Mussi have been working hard on the soft landscaping.
With the Learning Pavilion and Entranceway complete the next stage of the project is to plant the borders and finish getting the space ready for visitors.
In recent weeks, volunteers have been hard at work behind the garden walls, concentrating on planting out the new garden borders and keeping up with weeding, weeding and even more weeding!! Thanks to the creative vision of local artists-gardener Cleo Mussi, a striking planting plan has been devised which will eventually fill the garden with swathes of glorious colour.
Thanks to the support of our hard working volunteers we are much further ahead of the planting than we anticipated. Therefore, we've decided to provide special sneak peeks of the secret garden as it is now! This will happen every Sunday in August between 2pm and 4pm.
When you visit you'll see that thanks to the huge support and involvement from all parts of the local community, and from funders, the work to create the Garden is almost complete.
The Walled Garden will be fully open from the weekend of October 8th and 9th. Special events are planned as part of the Museum’s programme for the garden – keep a look out for announcements on our website www.museuminthepark.org.uk
The Friends are continuing to fundraise for project to help with planting and the purchase and installation of a pergola (garden arch). More information on the Friends can be found on the Museum Friends page.
