In-keeping with their ethos of sustainability, they now have an organic vegetable plot, which is very much their kitchen garden. Together with the orchard and their rare breeds of poultry the garden provides them with food throughout the year.

The gardens also boast a beautiful pond and a series of small waterfalls. Visitors can sit by the pond and enjoy the peaceful sounds of running water and the beautiful reflections of the trees and sky. The garden also has a small stream that runs through it, adding to the calming atmosphere of the space. The water features also attract a variety of wildlife, including frogs, toads, and dragonflies.

Visitors can learn about their eco practices and how they can incorporate them into their own gardens.
