Foxhole Community Garden, Dartington

An orchard in the garden

Foxhole Community Garden was founded in May 2015 by three childhood friends – Zoe Jong, Kate Baker and Penny Hendy. Their aim was to bring back into use Foxhole Community Garden as a resource for the local community and a place to offer therapeutic gardening sessions and gardening sessions for families.

Their mission is to create and sustain an accessible, welcoming garden, including an orchard, of use to people of all ages and sectors of the community. They use organic no-dig gardening methods and are working to create insect and wildlife habitats to encourage biodiversity in the garden.
