The Five A Day Market Garden is situated in the beautiful village of Englefield, West Berkshire. We are a not-for-profit community supported project which aims to engage the rural and urban community by:
- selling affordable, healthy, naturally grown produce
- educating children, adults and older people within an outdoor therapeutic environment, with a focus on art, nature and fruit and vegetable production
- encouraging people to get involved through volunteering
- offering a unique team building experience to corporate organisations
Awarded 2nd place in the Dorothy Morley Conservation Award 2014.

Seasonal gardening tips from Head Gardener Pam Goddard
As the snowdrops appear and the days start to get a little longer, we can see that spring is on its way! On milder days, it's worth getting out in the garden and finishing off any jobs that didn't get done in autumn. Weeding and forking over the soil are great jobs to do as well as cleaning seed trays and pots all ready for spring sowing. Broad beans can be planted now but protect seeds from mice and voles!
