This award-winning organic garden, created in the 1970s on reclaimed derelict land, is a vibrant and well-established oasis of tranquillity in the heart of an historic inner-city area. Cable Street Community Gardens reflects the diversity of the borough, with more than 50 families tending plots. The garden attracts lots of wildlife with several small ponds and a traditional British hedgerow. It also features raised planters for elderly gardeners and those with limited mobility and serves as an important community hub. Children are very welcome.
This is a community garden project run by local residents where everything in the garden belongs to everyone and all crops are grown and shared together. A feast of organic vegetables, salads, aromatic herbs, beautiful flowers and wildlife.
Situated next to All Hallows Church on a busy road through the City, the award winning Nic’s Secret Garden and Plant Rescue Nursery is a small oasis in the urban city jungle, an exemplar of one person's passion for horticulture.
