The Garden

Award-winning Phoenix Farm provides a learning resource for schools and local community groups and offers volunteering opportunities for local residents. The one-acre farm produces more than 40 varieties of fruit and vegetables, as well as medicinal herbs, plants to attract wildlife and edible flowers from its glasshouses and beds. There is a community orchard, soft fruits and wildlife areas, as well as bees, rabbits and chickens. This garden, in the centre of the White City Estate, has won many awards including a Gold Medal at Hampton Court Flower Show in 2016 and Gold in the RHS It's Your Neighbourhood campaign.
