HEOG members Luciole and Jan will share the magic of their organic market garden on Mill Piece in Bubbenhall on this midsummer afternoon.  The garden is situated on country lanes with limited parking so please car-share as much as possible.   Strictly no dogs please.

Mill Piece Gardens was founded in 2017. It is named after the field it is on: "Mill Piece", which once belonged to the nearby water mill on the banks of the Avon. Sadly, the mill burnt down under mysterious circumstances many years ago.

 

Although they use polytunnels to lengthen the growing season for certain produce, they work hard to keep their carbon footprint as low as possible, including using the no-dig method which prevents carbon loss from the soil.

 

They use ecological methods to grow, which means no pesticides, no herbicides and no artificial fertilisers - they are grateful for what nature offers and work in harmony with wildlife, creating a balanced environment so that pests are controlled by natural predators.

They supply local pubs and restaurants. As they have a creative approach and like trying new species and varieties, they are keen to work with local chefs to bring out the best in their produce.  Since early 2020 they have also been supplying local farmshops and other retailers.

 

 

Directions to Mill Piece Gardens

Off the A445, drive through Bubbenhall towards Stoneleigh and then turn left into Watery Lane and the gardens are immediately on your left.

There is space for a few cars on the verge, so please car-share and park your vehicle off the road to avoid cars and farm vehicles.
