The garden has been created as a way to involve the community, local schools and people with sensory deprivation in learning about gardening and the sustainability of the environment.
The garden focuses on four of the five senses – sight, smell, touch and hearing. It features a range of plants and features to invigorate and interest garden users. Garden visitors can get lost in the maze and take a walk through the ever-changing willow tree Living Tunnel. Other features include a fish pond that is surrounded by a wide variety of plants, a Wind Engine, a Sound Fence for visitors to make some noise and a meeting area/classroom.
As part of the Fenland Leader+ Scheme, the garden was completed with funding help from the European Union of European Agricultural Guidance.
