Welcome to the Bath WI Garden!
The Bath WI garden is a small but perfectly formed community garden in the beautiful Botantical Gardens in Royal Victoria Park. The garden is entirely made up of edible plants and flowers. We want to inspire people to plant edibles that are not only useful, but beautiful as well.
The iron bath echoes the Bath WI logo, and the beautiful iron seat has been kindly lent to us by Iron Art.
We rely on a group of amazing members who volunteer their time and effort to sow seeds and grow them on in their own greenhouses, dig, plant, water and maintain the garden.
The garden has gone from strength to strength and receives so many compliments – even mentions on TripAdvisor!
The garden has become a focus for our WI – and the centre of our annual July garden party – enjoyed by our own members, members of other WIs, the wonderful Botanicals (as we cake the amazing team of gardeners in the Bath Botanical Gardens), past speakers, local dignitaries and many more!
In September 2015 our wonderful garden and the garden party had a double page spread in WI Life Magazine!
Later the same month we were tickled pink to be asked to appear on BBC Gardeners’ World. A fantastic team, including Rachel de Thame, spent a day with us in the garden and in Kitty’s kitchen…pickling runner beans from the garden!
