Medieval Garden

Photo Gallery

A medieval kitchen garden in the style once seen hundreds of years ago at Glastonbury Abbey is to be recreated.

Centuries ago the abbey would have grown its own produce for use within the Abbot's Kitchen which catered for the abbot and his high-status guests such as the Royal family of the time as well as to feed the monks and employees.

The garden will be created from an area which is currently overgrown and will be next to the current herb garden on the edge of the orchard.

People are wanted to help with the initiative which aims to create a garden similar to that which existed at the abbey. Details of courses can be seen below.

The project has secured funding from Somerset Skills and Learning with the following courses available for individuals.
