Old Orchard Garden

Heath Hands has worked proactively with the City of London's Conservation and Learning teams over many years to develop dedicated education gardens on the Heath.

One of these is located off Hampstead Lane, the space was formerly part of Kenwood's Walled Garden and retains a special feeling of tranquility. Our work has assisted the development of a safe environment for outdoor learning and enjoyment, which is being utilised by the local community and schools.

Children can weave their way through our willow tunnels, search for bugs under logs and watch for rare birds and other species around the teeming pond.
