A willow bench, one of the living sculptures in the grounds.

As well as growing fruit and vegetables, the gardeners work together with other community members on outdoor sculpture and building projects. The willow bench, made out of living willow trees which have been planted in a semi circle and then woven together, is big enough to seat all the community members.
