Redhall Walled Garden is a beautiful 18th century walled garden that offers a safe environment for people to learn to deal with the challenges of recovering from enduring mental health problems.
The organic, community garden and surrounding estate provide individuals with direct connections to nature and a social support structure that is conducive to mental and physical well-being. A guided tour of the garden and estate will be followed by workshop activities focused on the design of a new teaching kitchen cabin, verandah and associated landscaping.
