Twigs Community Gardens


The themed gardens are the main focus of the site and have evolved over the last 18 years. Wherever possible art and sculpture have been incorporated to enhance the setting. The gardens were described in an article for Wiltshire Life in 2010 by Anna Stowe which you can read here.The plant sales and plant production areas form part of the garden site and visitors can see first hand how we produce quality organic plants. We have been putting together an extensive collection of trees, shrubs and perennials over the years, so much so that we could perhaps now be regarded as ‘Swindon’s Botanic Gardens’!


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a mental illness? Or ever wondered what it would be like to be entirely alone and trapped in your own mind? Well if you pay a visit to Twigs Community Gardens in Swindon, I’m sure some of the many volunteers who are responsible for creating and working on this fantastic garden would be able to explain just exactly what it’s like. Formed in 1997, a local lady came up with a brilliant concept that working in such an open space could not only be beneficial, but just as therapeutic to those people suffering with any form of mental illness. I didn’t just feature Twigs because of the great work they do within the community of Swindon. I featured their garden because it truly is a wonderful creation. But don’t just take my word for it, come and see for yourself! I promise you will not be disappointed!
