The Enfield centre is set in 30 acres of idyllic parkland, themed and wooded/wilderness gardens, plus water features and a range of trial gardens, sponsored by Which? Gardening. The College also runs a working farm at nearby Forty Hall, including a community market garden, orchard and vineyard, close to Enfield Council’s historic Forty Hall Museum and conference centre, www.fortyhallfarm.org.uk.
Capel Manor estate records go back to the 13th century, whilst the present Georgian manor house can be traced back to 1750. During the mid 1960s, the eminent local horticulturist Frances Perry, resident nearby, suggested to the local council that it could lease the badly neglected gardens of Capel Manor and a few outbuildings, in order to train craftsmen gardeners (then mostly employed in local authority Parks departments).
Enfield agreed and in 1968 the first group of students began training. There were twelve students then. Forty four years later, we welcome close to three thousand students.
