Park and Gardens

Kitchen Garden

Following extensive refurbishment funded by the Big Lottery Local Food programme, the Kitchen Garden has been developed as a community project to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs for the cafe with the aim of providing a "dish a day" and educational opportunities for everyone. Regular workshops and 1:1 learning opportunities are provided by our gardener

The Kitchen Garden includes original nineteenth century features such as the Fernery where ferns and aspidistras would have been grown for the family house. Regular gardening days on Tuesdays and Thursdays (weather permitting), plus occasional Community Gardening days, ensure that the kitchen garden is very productive and open for everyone to visit and enjoy

As a legacy of the Local Food Project Ford Park is spearheading the development of Incredible Edible Ulverston-following in the footsteps of the International food Movement startd in Todmorden 6 years ago! We hope to work alongside local gardeners, schools, the Town Council, local food businesses, environmentalists and interested local people to set up the first Incredible Edible Town in Cumbria. What does this mean? We aim to provide access to good local food for all through working together; learning (from field to classroom to kitchen) and supporting local business.
