The gardens’ director Ruth Madder showed us round and explained the work that they do there. They are a mental health charity that provides social and therapeutic horticulture to adults living in Oxfordshire. As well as the gardens there is a vineyard which produces organically certified sparkling wine, which can be purchased at the Finstock community shop as well as Wootton Stores.
This is a lovely place to visit, for those who haven’t been. They hold regular Open Days; dates are advertised in the Slate so look out for next year’s openings.
