using lessons from the past to improve our futures
Hope Farm Community Garden is in The High Weald which is one of 34 areas in England designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1983.
In November 2022, with funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund we launched our 2-year Living History Programme with the aim of engaging communities to uncover the hidden, but vibrant, natural, cultural and community heritage of our beautiful 22-acre site.
By improving access and developing interpretation to bring this landscape and its stories to life, we are delivering educational, social and life-improving activities that use lessons from the past to improve our futures, with specific focus on:
Training in traditional South of England Style Hedgelaying – courses run November to February.
