The Urban Garden
At Urban Garden they do incredible work for the community, as well as supplying visitors with gorgeous plants from the garden centre. They proudly describe themselves as the “smallest garden centre with the biggest heart” and this couldn’t be more true — here they give horticultural training to young unemployed adults in Bath, helping many get back into work through these skills. And thanks to the hard work of these people you can pick up stunning plants of all varieties.
Located within the famous Victoria Park, at the Urban Garden they have everything from herbs to bright perennials to houseplants, so whether you have a few pots of flowers or an entire jungle at home, they’ll have something for you here (plus planting plans are provided so even if you’re a newbie, you’ll know what to do). And it’s not just plants, they also have everything you’d need to go with it, like pots and fertiliser, and you can also purchase a coffee while you admire all your new purchases!
All profits from the Urban Garden are reinvested back into the training, helping to improve the mental health and wellbeing of local adults.
