The garden was designed by Transition Town Farnham’s Gayle Souter-Brown, as a positive response to economic and environmental pressures. It is a drought-resistant example of modern planting with space to walk in amongst the plants.
Other beds have been designed as (largely edible) historic gardens and are to be planted over time.
As Gayle said, “Today’s interest in allotment gardening is a positive response to economic and environmental pressures. Once again we can see the benefits of growing our own food and especially how easy it is.”
