The Bohemia Walled Garden Association welcomes members of the community to share the garden for events that meet the garden’s intentions (outlined in our constitution).

Of most importance is the need to respect the natural environment, both within the walled garden and outside in the woodland. We value this as a place for gardening, for education and community enjoyment.

If you would like to use the Walled Garden for an event please read and complete this form or email info@bohemiawga.org.uk
