The Secret Garden

Space for nature’s home is a beautiful forest garden on the edge of Ramsbottom with spectacular views over Holcombe Hill and the West Pennine Moors.

Once a small holding it has been mostly neglected and left to its own devices for the best part of 20 years . During this time a natural ecology of wild flowers , plants and trees has been formed within a small woodland glade creating a beautifully bio-diverse wildlife haven that provides the perfect space to engage the community in outdoor nature based events and activities that aim to

Reduce Social Isolation

Encourage community ownership of the space

Provide an informal and friendly space to explore and learn about permaculture, wildlife habitat and conservation.

Encourage engagement with nature as a source of healing through creative activities , Wild Therapy and Wild Wisdom workshops.
