All our own work! Nancledra primary school children & gardener Phil

Here, local schools, colleges and community groups grow their own produce with the help of our garden team. Parents testify that their children previously refused to eat vegetables – until they grew their own at Trengwainton.

A passion for pumpkins

The amazing colours of Trengwainton's pumpkins

We love pumpkins so much we've devoted a whole section to them. If you've only ever seen the plain orange ones for sale, you'll be amazed at the variety of size, shape and colour of those in our Pumpkin Garden.

Getting creative - the Pond Garden

The pond will have the children searching for wildlife and a striking central flower bed will have you reaching for your camera. This is where we have fun making designs with flowers – and even lettuces.

The viewing platform in the Community Garden is the ideal spot to take photographs across the five sections of the Walled Kitchen Garden.

As you look from end to end, picture this: the Walled Kitchen Garden was built to the dimensions of Noah's Ark.
