In 2018, a quadrant of the churchyard at St Paul's, in the heart of Camden, was identified for the creation of a community garden. The area had been left untouched for 15 years.
The churchyard is bordered by 19th century plane trees, and the team took inspiration from these, developing a space consistent with what you might find at the edge of a woodland canopy. This hidden woodland garden enables people from all walks of life, some of whom are the most vulnerable in the community, to access gardening and green space and so enjoy the benefits that participation can bring. The team at St Paul's Woodland Garden believes that gardens and nature can have a transformative impact on people’s lives.
