Coed Gardens

from the Kitchen Garden, 2017

Ediculture has its main base of activities from Coed Gardens, in the Vale of Glamorgan.

We manage:

  • 2 acre forest garden – perennials, herbs, fruit trees, wild life plants, and bees
  • A large kitchen garden – growing vegetables and herbs on a home scale style.
  • a 1/2 acre agroforestry plot, combining fruit trees with crop production, utilizing a 2 wheel tractor for more intensive ally cropping.

We run education days and open days throughout the year. It is also where we teach our Ediculture Course, which covers the topics of:


Herbal medicine

Organic food growing

Pruning and grafting fruit trees,


Seed saving, and much more…

We are open to the general public from Monday – Thursday all year round, but its best to check with us first before arriving as sometimes there are private events on like weddings and festivals.

These gardens have developed over the last 25 years, through many peoples efforts and visions. We are now able to produce about one third of our total communities food needs from the garden.

One of the key values of Coed Gardens for Ediculture has been giving Ediculture the capacity to trial hundreds of varieties of Fruit trees.
