This dedicated community garden gives local residents some quiet time, allows children to explore wildlife and offers space that families can enjoy together. The garden has a wildlife pond, orchard, herb and flowerbeds as well as a pergola and a winding path leading to a small fernery. Tate Modern and the green community charity the Bankside Open Spaces Trust work in partnership on the project. The garden has an active events programme with children participating in planting days, pond dipping, wildlife-spotting, gardening clubs and a popular Halloween event. Local people meet, dig, have fun and enjoy the flowers, plants and animals.
