Garden Bed Names

Bed names are base on their origin or some event or group who have made a contribution towards the development

of the bed. There are some beds which have not been allocated names. The names help us to identify the areas we

plan to work on and also act as recognition of those outside our group who have contributed to the development

of the reserve.

It is noted and acknowledged that students from St Paul’s School have worked on the following garden beds: Turkey

Garden Bed, Railway Garden Bed, Scouts Garden Bed.
