Webbs Garden

Webb’s Garden is a beautiful two acre walled garden within the grounds of St Martin’s Hospital. 

The garden was created in 1985 to provide a therapeutic experience for the hospital’s mental health patients and continues to provide a haven of calm and relaxation today. The garden is managed by KMPT Voluntary services in conjunction with a team of volunteers. 

Friends for Mental Health East Kent have been involved in the support of the garden for many years and continue to offer their support.

 Webb’s Garden exists to enhance the lives of those who volunteers, service users and staff. 

Volunteers currently attend the garden three mornings a week. They cultivate a wide range of vegetables, fruit and cut flowers. The garden relies on money it earns from selling produce to hospital staff and members of the public.

The garden actively supports service users on the acute wards at St Martin’s or those in the community.  The garden offers a variety of opportunities such as:

  • Feel part of a community
  • Social interaction
  • A place of safety for relaxation and tranquillity
  • Volunteering

If anyone is interested in volunteering as a gardener or helping with maintenance, please email Voluntary Services - kmpt.voluntaryservices@nhs.net
