Growing Together in Extraordinary Times

Welcome to our Nature Blog from Colebrooke Walled Garden. Started in April 2020 during the Coronavirus Pandemic this blog is supported through funds from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust. Whilst we are in lockdown we have been thinking about some innovative ways we can continue to engage with you and keep you informed of happenings in Brooke House, the Walled Garden and on the wider Colebrooke estate. Actively engaging in nature, including gardening, is good for our health and wellbeing and we need this now more than ever. So while we can’t all be physically together on the estate we hope this blog will inspire and support you to engage with nature virtually or to use some of the helpful hints, tutorials and information in your own homes and gardens with your families
