Home of Material Institute, Botanical sits on the banks of the River Derwent in the heart of Bridgewater. Our main market garden is here, where we grow fresh produce for our 24 Carrot Gardens schools and local community groups. We also grow the seedlings to keep our gardens humming along year-round.

Several of our Material Institute social enterprises call the site home as well: Beauty Lab, Art Studio and Botanical Kitchen & Cafe.
