Site Features

  • The site is based in the grounds of the Wrexham Glyndwr University, Northop Campus/Coleg Cambria
  • We have brought the six polytunnels back into production and introduced automatic irrigation.
  • We also tend and harvest the well-established large orchard.
  • The polytunnels enable us to extend our season and to grow the tender crops such as melons, peaches and aubergines.


  • All our crops are grown to organic principles.
  • We have recently grown carrots, peas, beetroot, French beans, cucumbers, lettuce, butternut squash, peaches, melons, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, plums, herbs and probably much more!!



2 minutes from the A55 access to the Northop site is through the grounds of the Wrexham Glyndwr University, Northop campus. It can also be accessed from the road down a short track.

Please contact the Northop site manager  for more details.

Who is this site suitable for? Why?

  • The Northop site can be accessed by car and is on a flat site, so is suitable for most people.
  • As much of the growing is in polytunnels it’s great for those fair weather gardeners – Usually warm and always dry!
