The Garden

This winner of the RHS and LiB “IYN” Level 5 “Outstanding” Award in 2020 and 2021, the LiB Outstanding Achievement Award in 2021 and The Worshipful Company of Gardeners’ “Best Small Garden, Summer 2021” is a testament to its creator's passion for horticulture. Nic, one of the Corporation of London gardeners, works with volunteers to nurture the plants, some he grows from seeds or bulbs, some he rescues and others which are donated, in a relaxed approach to horticulture before passing the plants on to neighbouring community garden projects. Nic is also a passionate and knowledgeable champion of bringing biodiversity into city spaces through his work with community groups.

Gardener: Nic Guerra
