About Us

On the 26th May 2019, our friend Steve Dent,  the Circusgardener will run a cooking demonstration / lesson at our site.

This event will happen at 12.30 pm, you are all invited to come and see this well known food blogger cook his one-pot bean stew cooked on a campfire. Of course there will be the chance to taste some when it is done!


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 part of 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

There are lots of opportunities for you to learn new skills, join our gardening club and volunteer to contribute to this fantastic enterprise. Come and visit us; you will receive a very warm welcome.

We are open between 10am and 2pm every day apart from Wednesday. This is weather dependent. Our motto is when the gates are open you are welcome to have a look around.
