Meet our charity partner

Faversham Fringe supported Abbey Physic Community Garden for the 2018 festival. Abbey Physic Community Garden is a community-based working environment for the people of Kent to enjoy long-term. The garden is set in the heart of Faversham and offers a unique opportunity to establish a tranquil, health-giving environment that enables people from all sectors of society to come together.

Situated in a beautiful, walled, wildlife-friendly, organically-managed garden, Abbey Physic Community Garden places an emphasis on the therapeutic benefits of horticultural activities. The charity grows a wide range of spray-free vegetables, fruit, plants and flowers which are for available to visitors in return for donations.

The charity offers training in various areas, such as NVQs in horticulture in association with Hadlow College, and other garden-related courses, thus providing skills that can be used in the community at large.

Abbey Physic Community Garden also kindly agreed to be one of our outdoor venues for 2018. You can find out more about this wonderful local charity on their website. We highly recommend taking the time to visit the gardens in person.
