Visitors to Blickling Hall will be given a first hand look this week at an ambitious scheme to recreate a 1930s style garden at the historic site.
On Saturday head gardener Paul Underwood will be explaining what the community food growing project will look like and how local groups will be involved in looking after it.
The National Trust hopes to secure lottery funding for its garden plans, which will be based on a previous 1930s walled kitchen garden.
Once the built is set up it is hoped that local schools, community groups and people with learning difficulties or disabilities will work in the garden.

Produce from the garden will be used at the hall's restaurant and be offered to other food outlets.
National Trust spokeswoman Jemma Finch said: 'Although the funding has yet to be secured, this is a great opportunity to find out more about the project in the preliminary stages and see just how you can get involved.
