Projects > Ripon Community Link Walled Garden

North Yorkshire Aggregates Grants Scheme (NYAGS)


Ripon Community Link Walled Garden was formerly part of the Bishop's Palace and also includes an Orchard, Woodland and courtyard.

The charity operating the centre provides educational and occupational opportunities for people (members) with learning and physical disabilities and young offenders. Since 2009 NYAGS (North Yorkshire Aggregates Grants Scheme) has helped fund a range of projects at the Walled Garden, including the reinstatement of walkways through the grounds, management of the orchard and planting native broadleaf trees.

Work has also included the redevelopment of the courtyard buildings to maximise the workspace available so that members can develop a wide range of horticultural skills and increase their self confidence and employability. The final phase of work, currently on-going, will see the creation of a new shop and visitor centre open to the general public.
