The Growing Kitchen is an award-winning resident-led community garden project, which promotes inclusivity and diversity. A Lottery grant helped to transform this disused site in a peaceful corner of Hoxton into a beautiful communal garden where residents garden, cook and socialise. There are micro-allotments, raised herb beds, a communal foraging area with wildlife pond, and a covered space with clay oven and barbecue. Residents are constantly looking for new areas to cultivate and have also created a wild orchard and flower meadow nearby in the heart of the estate.
Refreshments, peppermint tea and homemade cakes for sale. Informal guided tours, children’s activities and picnic areas available.
This multi award-winning community garden project features a hidden paradise of 46 plots and communal lawns, herb and wildlife gardens. It was established in 1982 and is managed and maintained by local people.
