About Us


The Old North Stables is a delightful urban teaching, research and community display garden, of 3/4 an acre, situated in the heart of Worcester on the edge of Pitchcroft Race Course. It is a Community Interest Company (CIC) affiliated with Transition Worcester

We help you to grow, harvest, process, cook and eat more of your own healthy, seasonal food sustainably right where you live. Promotion of biodiversity and wildlife conservation are also central to everything we do.

This exciting facility holds several benefits for you and the wider community, including:

  • improvements in your physical and mental wellbeing
  • a strengthening of our community
  • reaching out to the marginalised
  • an increase in your skills and knowledge about how to grow fruit and vegetables
  • a reduction in your food miles
  • a closer connection with where your food comes from
  • fresher and healthier seasonal food for you at a reduced cost
  • learning how to renew, reuse and recycle more of your resources
  • more biodiversity and contact with wildlife for you
  • To provide small charities with some herbs and vegetables
