Abbey Physic Community Garden
A Permaculture Land Demonstration site. A beautiful wellbeing garden that focuses on Peoplecare while demonstrating many land techniques. Its a wonderful place full of wildlife on an ancient site that was once part of a medieval Abbey.
It is a beautiful award winning ‘secret’ walled garden in the ancient market town of Faversham. Tucked away behind the churchyard of St. Mary of Charity by the late 16th century grammar school, now a Masonic Hall, a small sign indicates the modest door, set into an old brick wall, to the Abbey garden.
The garden was established in the mid 90's by the National Schizophrenia Fellowship, now renamed Rethink Mental Illness. The Abbey Physic Community Garden became a charity in its own right in 1997.
