Welcome to CAT Gardens


To look at the thriving gardens at CAT's Visitor Centre, it is hard to imagine that 30 years ago the site was covered almost entirely with slate waste. With hard work and a lot of compost, we have been able to develop a variety of display gardens as well as our vegetable field, which supplies our restaurant with delicious organic salad.
