Since 2005, a major restoration project has been under way to revive the Fulham Palace buildings and grounds. Once enclosed by the longest moat in England, 13 acres remain of the original 36 acre garden. The next exciting phase of the garden project is about to start, developing the grounds to become an historically informed public garden, aiming to demonstrate high horticulture standards and involving community groups and volunteers. This London based horticultural placement will provide a unique opportunity to be part of the team at the beginning of this project.. The practical work will include bringing the newly restored Walled Garden back to horticultural production and the planting and maintenance of the Fulham Palace grounds. The placement will also include useful experience within the neighbouring local authority park – Bishops Park.
This placement has been part funded by the generous support of the Barbara and Philip Denny Trust.
