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.
