Nurturing Plants and People at the Learning Garden
This exciting community venture has seen 5,000ft² of our car park transformed into a living and breathing space, complete with vegetable and herb plots, wild flowers, herbaceous and perennial beds, as well as established trees and shrubs.
Waste Not Want Not is a social enterprise and community interest company based in the North car park of the Galleria. Established four and a half years ago, the project uses horticulture as a therapeutic tool to help those who have experienced major traumas in their lives get back on track. There are also volunteers who wish to put something back into their community and learn new horticulture skills.
Waste Not Want Not also sell the plants in the Learning Garden, and all monies taken are ploughed back into the project and there are no paid staff.
The garden is a little bit of heaven in Hatfield and is the perfect space for some peace and quiet to enjoy your lunch break so do please drop by with your picnic lunch and enjoy the garden.
They are keen to recruit more volunteers to help man the Learning Garden. Please phone Hal Fowler or email with your contact details.
The garden is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays 10am-2pm. As it is run by volunteers we advise you call before you set out to visit to check we are open.
