Abbey Physic Community Garden

The Abbey Physic Community Garden is a beautiful award winning ‘secret’ walled garden in the ancient market town of Faversham.  Tucked away behind the churchyard of St. Mary of Charity by the late 16th century grammar school, now a Masonic Hall, a small sign indicates the modest door, set into an old brick wall, to the Abbey garden.

Stepping in to the half-acre garden one immediately feels as if one has stumbled on an enchanted world. The garden is an organically managed community garden that exists to promote the therapeutic benefits of horticulture. There are many different sections to the garden and one wants to embrace it all at once such is its quiet magnetic charm. It is a hive of activity with individuals busy working away, some on their own, some in pairs or in small groups.

There is something for you here.
