The Triangle Garden is a community garden, created and cultivated by local people of all ages and abilities and run on permaculture principles. It is part of a local park in Hitchin, and is open all year round.
We aim to enable people to experience and explore their relationship with the natural world, through a variety of different activities:
Volunteer gardening activities: on weekends and evenings to create, maintain and develop new features in the Garden for the benefit of people and wildlife.
Workshop and Courses: focusing on a wide range of aspects of sustainable living, including forest gardening, permaculture design, permaculture gardening, food growing and preserving, wine-making, plant propagation and pruning, wildlife awareness, and hedgerow crafts including basketry and willow weaving.
Community events: bringing people together, celebrating what’s special about our community and raising awareness about sustainability
Growing Ability: our project for adults with learning difficulties. The Triangle Garden and allotment provide the setting for ‘social and therapeutic horticulture’ sessions in partnership with Growing People. a local horticulture therapy provider. The project aims to improve the well-being, self-confidence, social and work-life skills of those who take part, through gardening and horticulture.
Craft Ability: a pilot project for adults with learning and/or mental health difficulties. The Pavilion workshop provides the setting for social and therapeutic woodwork sessions in partnership with Growing People. The project aims to improve the well-being, self-confidence, social and work-life skills of those who take part, through collaborative craft and woodwork projects.
