A little bit about us!

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

In March 2017, Pam Goddard, the Project Co-ordinator at Five A Day received an award from the High Sheriff of the Royal County of Berkshire in recognition of dedicated service to Five A Day and enhancing the life of the community.

We have recently been shortlisted for an award from Bayer / Farming and Countryside Education! Watch this space!

Welcome to the garden!

Our wonderful volunteers are busy in the garden with lots of seed sowing, vegetable planting and just a little bit of weeding!

We are always looking for more volunteers to help in the garden, get fit and eat lots of cake! Do get in touch if you would like to join our fantastic team of gardeners - no experience required!.

We're now selling our delicious rhubarb. Pop in Wednesday or Friday, 10am - 3pm or check our table at Englefield Garden Centre on a Saturday.
