The Community Orchard and Wildlife Garden

An oasis of calm hidden behind high walls in the midst of urban life. This community project commenced in the February of 2013 and is an evolving garden, orchard and nature sanctuary. The main features include a pond, a young orchard, a vegetable bed, rock garden, bee keeping and areas set aside for wildlife.

The historic gravestones of the Society of Friends are still in situ.

This garden opens as part of Sefton Park Gardens on Sunday 16 July.

More about The Community Orchard and Wildlife Garden

The Society of Friends were keen to promote positive community activities and sustainability. They have helped fund the project in coordination with TANN (The Avenues Neighbourhood Network), who are carrying out the clearing and gardening work. The history of the garden as a Quaker Graveyard will fascinate those interested in the early development of Liverpool and cities in general.
