Two community kitchen garden projects are located on disused platforms at Kensington Olympia Station and a vacant plot of land between housing. The kitchen gardens provide food growing spaces in raised beds for residents living in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Olympia kitchen garden, part of which has a small area planted for pollinators and wildlife, was made possible with support from Network Rail. A short walk away is Russell Road kitchen garden. Access to both gardens is from Russell Road, on the opposite side of the overground railway from Olympia Exhibition Centre, over the footbridge.
Lead Community Gardener: William Rallison
