Growing Space at Christ Church
Growing Space at Christ Church opened in May 2019. The edible and woodland garden, located in the south grounds of Christ Church Kensington, is an urban green oasis that serves the community, church and local schoolchildren by reconnecting residents of all ages with nature and teaching them where food comes from and how it is grown. A formerly neglected patch of earth, overrun with weeds and refuse, the new garden includes the beautifully rebuilt retaining wall along Kynance Mews, eight raised beds for growing edibles, woodland forest school garden, sensory border and greenhouse.
