Helping in the Garden
Are you a company or organisation looking for a different, creative team-building experience?  You'll work on tasks in the Secret Garden and contribute something to improving the environment as well as building team morale and having fun (for example Home Retail Group have made 3 outings this year - with a 4th planned -  so that does sound like it is enjoyable! and we've been delighted by the amount and quality of their work, thank you!).
If you like the sound of this, please do contact us.


On a patch of ground alongside the Grand Union Canal in the railway town of Wolverton, Milton Keynes, members of the local community have transformed a piece of derelict land into a new greenspace for the enjoyment of all of the community - the Secret Garden.

On this site you can discover the process of the creation of the Secret Garden and meet the people involved. You can also find out about our latest news and forthcoming events.

  • Come and Volunteer!

    Other than when we have companies helping us for a day (see above) all the upkeep of the gardens is done by volunteers and these days we're very shorthanded, so how about being a Secret Garden Volunteer?  Come and join us any Saturday morning between 10 and 12:30.  No need to be experienced, nor to arrange beforehand nor complete any paperwork, nor make a commitment for every week, nor stay for the entire time,,,,so you just turn up and awarm welcome awaits! If the weather's inclement, you'll probably find us at Buskers nearby.

  • Secret Garden Events

    For possibly the first year, there were no Summer Sunday concerts in 2015 which disappointed a lot of people. So, what's needed is someone(s) who’d be happy to arrange the 4-5 concerts each summer, bands who’d like to play here are also urged to contact us... .As are people who'd like to use the Secret Garden for their party or wedding reception (just remembering it is a public space).
