The John Joseph Mechi Garden
The John Joseph Mechi Garden

This garden is dedicated to the Victorian entrepreneur John Joseph Mechi. The design pays tribute to Mechi's connection to RABI, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, and to Wilkin & Sons who are celebrating 125 years of producing preserves at Tiptree. Mechi divided his time between London and Tiptree Hall in Essex, where he became known for pioneering new agricultural techniques. In 1860, his concern for the welfare of those working on the land led to the founding of RABI. In 1885 A C Wilkin, a neighbouring farmer, started making preserves from fruit grown on his farm, and in 1913 Wilkin & Sons purchased Tiptree Hall.
