What's it all about?
The Morrab Botanical Gardens is a beautiful subtropical garden in the heart of Penzance. Nestled in the grounds sits the now derelict,
former stables building... but plans are afoot!
The community team behind the Gardeners’ House project plan to restore and re-purpose the sadly derelict stables block located in
the beautiful Morrab Gardens, which can be found in the heart of Penzance.
The transformation will include a new public space in which a programme of botanical and environmental projects for and by the community can be delivered.
It will also create a base for local volunteer groups including the Friends of Morrab Gardens as well as house a unique botanical book
and archive collection with the view to providing an excellent learning facility and resource for the local and wider community of all ages.
The spaces within the building have been thoughtfully designed and looked at to create the maximum benefit whilst making the utmost of this great asset.
