Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden & Guernsey Botanical Trust
The Guernsey Botanical Trust was formed in 2006 for the express purpose of restoring Saumarez Park’s Victorian walled garden as a charitable and voluntary project.
The garden had been part of the de Saumarez family’s private estate, which was acquired by the States of Guernsey following the death of the fourth Lord de Saumarez in 1937. While the park itself has been substantially used for public purposes, the walled garden fell into a state of disuse and disrepair over the years.
Volunteers can be found working in the garden on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Visitors can also purchase produce in season from the garden on Saturday mornings from 10:00-12 noon, and have a chat with the gardeners.
